Innovation Agency Chief Executive Dr Liz Mear has been included in the 2019 Northern Power Women List.
She is one of a small number selected to join a list of influencers recognised for using power for good, challenging the norm and ensuring that everyone they work with recognises the benefits of having gender balanced organisations.
Liz has also been shortlisted in the Transformation category of the Northern Power Women Awards, which are announced in March.
The aim of the Northern Power Women List is to ensure women are involved in key decisions and thinking when talking about the Northern Powerhouse.
Liz said: “I am flattered to be listed alongside amazing people who are making a huge difference as leaders and change makers. I believe we can all do more to harness the true potential of the North if we support women in achieving positions of leadership and in having a strong voice in our economy, across all sectors.”
“I think our younger generation need good role models who are women and the Northern Power Women Awards and Power List are a fantastic way to inspire people, of all ages.”
The Northern Power Women Awards take place on 18 March, at Manchester Central Convention Complex.
