Pinky Lilani, OBE DL, founder of Asian Women of Achievement Awards said: “We were thrilled this year to receive such a broad range of applications, covering not only a broad range of sectors but also coming from across the UK. We are proud to provide a platform to celebrate the talent and positive impact of British-Asian women in the community.”
The awards evening takes place in London on 12th May.
