Julie Hall, founder of Women Unlimited has been named as a Finalist in the Women Helping Women category in the 9th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 9. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend.
Julie Hall founded Women Unlimited in 2008 when she realized that there was a gap in the market for a website that celebrated the way that women do business and acknowledged their differences as business owners. Her goal is to double the percentage of female business owners in the UK over the next 20 years.
When Julie started Women Unlimited, the number of women owned businesses in the UK was estimated at 14%, this figure is now closer to 20%. This is a significant improvement and one that we hope will continue over the years to come. Women Unlimited serve their community by delivering practical and focused workshops, events and courses that help women create more success in their business. Julie Hall and Women Unlimited are the women in business partner with the British Library, running a unique and dynamic monthly business and mastermind club that supports women on their business journey.
“We’re very excited about this year’s Finalists in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “The judges have told me that they think this is the best and most inspiring crop of nominees we’ve ever had. We look forward to seeing the judges’ final decisions.”
Julie Hall says “I am so proud to be one of the finalists in these prestigious awards. Today more women than ever are moving towards entrepreneurship and enterprise and it is a really exciting time to be a woman in business. The women in the Women Unlimited community inspire me every day and it is an honour to be able to work with and connect with them.”
