WeAreTheCity wins Inspiration Award

WeAreTheCity recently won Inspirational Company at the Inspiration Awards.

The Inspiration Awards for Women celebrate the achievements of remarkable women who inspire those around them either through the media or through their astounding achievements in their everyday lives.

WeAreTheCity was presented with its awards during a gala dinner and awards ceremony attended by several celebrities at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London.

WeAreTheCity’s Founder and Managing Director, Vanessa Vallely was presented with the award for most Inspirational Company by TV personality Stacey Soloman (pictured).

Founder of the Inspiration Awards Sky Andrew; “Giving the next generation, role models that show it is possible to have a sense of status, achievement and success by conducting one-self in a manner that is inspirational.”

The awards were attended by the likes of Rio Ferdinand who was crowned Most Inspirational Man, beating off competition from the likes of Mo Farrah, David Beckham and Tim Peake.

During the awards ceremony Mirela Sula, Editor in Chief of Global Woman Magazine, said:We should be happy that we have come so far with examples of women managing large corporations, leading global projects in science, engineering and many other male dominated industries…In UK and Germany we are very proud to see two women leading their nations. However this is not a complete picture of women where they deserve to be.

It is our job that we create a society where our daughters, nieces and grand daughters have an equal place in this world.

A place that I have been looking to find for many years. It took me 38 years to wake up and understand that nobody can gift it to you. I took me almost four decades to have the courage to listen to my voice. A voice that sometimes we as women ignore.

And I understand why, because we are scared of what other people think about us, because all paradigms affect the way we interact with others. Because where we stand depends where we seat.”

The event also raised money for the Jane Goodall Institute, Breast Cancer Now and Cauldwell Children’s Trust.
