The annual awards for leadership in Wales are now accepting nominations across 9 categories – including Leadership in Voluntary and Not for Profit Sector.

The Leading Wales Awards seek to identify, recognise and celebrate personal achievement in outstanding leadership in Wales.

The organisations within the consortium share a passionate and professional belief that outstanding leadership (in all sectors) is the key driver of the growth of the economy of Wales.

In 2019 the theme of the awards is 'Daring to Lead', with the judges seek nominations of individuals whose leadership is courageous, inspirational and transformational and is having a significant positive impact, hence contributing to transforming their community, business or organisation. 

Leadership in Voluntary and Not For Profit sector 

The category is open to individuals who are either employed by a charity in Wales or are volunteers in Wales (aligned to any sector) and who have a leadership role. (Volunteering includes a variety of roles such as volunteering for a professional body, on a board of trustees, school governor etc.)

Last year's winner in this category was Cerys Furlong, CEO of gender equality charity Chwarae Teg. Read her leadership story at the Leading Wales website - or catch up with her talk on leadership in the third sector at this year's gofod3.
