Now in their seventh year the awards will, for the first time ever, become a hybrid event. They will take place on 29 September at the Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay, while Womenspire’s media partner, ITV Cymru Wales, will simultaneously broadcast the ceremony online via its Face Book Live and Twitter.

The event has only been run ‘virtually’ for the last two years due Covid -19, but will be back with a bang – with Andrea Byrne hosting an epic night of inspirational stories and entertainment.

Womenspire is an awards ceremony like no other. Finalists are recognised for achievements from all aspects of life and from across Wales, yet they all have something very much in common – they have all gone above and beyond to make a real positive difference to their own lives and the lives of others. We want to shine a light on their remarkable accomplishments, as they can so often go unnoticed. At Chwarae Teg we want to applaud what they’ve done and hold them up as role models.

“It feels extra special this year as our finalists will be able to join us in person while a virtual audience of thousands will get to share the evening with us from the comfort of their own homes or workplaces
