The Baton Awards is the leading platform for recognising BAME FEMALE PIONEERS in Britain.
The prestigious Awards both acknowledge Britain’s BAME pathfinders and celebrate the future pioneers of tomorrow across diverse sectors at The House of Lords.
Baton Award nominations are currently open, for BAME women who are considered to have made an outstanding contribution by demonstrating excellence in their field, who have paved the way, and whose strides reflect the ethos of the Batons Awards.
Devised by award-winning global female empowerment ambassador Dr Diahanne Rhiney BCAe, The Baton Awards 2019 has already garnered interest from all over the world due to its uniqueness in delivering not only inspiration and empowerment on the night, but ongoing support thereafter. Winners receive their Baton Award at The House of Lords from one of the pioneering predecessors (Torchbearers) in the field they have succeeded in, in an unprecedented gesture of progress, legacy and sisterhood. What sets The Baton Awards apart is the opportunity for winners to receive guidance, advice, support, PR and webinar training in the months after the awards. This is our long-term commitment to BAME women as we seek to affirmatively create real change for our powerful, talented and highly driven BAME female community.
