The only awards to exclusively champion 
women in credit

The Women in Credit Awards champion the work of a range of incredible women across the entire credit and financial services industry. They empower, connect, support and uncover achievements among inspirational women in the profession.

2021 nominations now open

Gender issues are important for a thriving profession and the Women in Credit brand highlights and encourages more debate on these issues. From board representation, diversity policies, gender pay, returning to work, as well as differences in leadership styles, we believe there is a place for a platform to highlight and discuss these matters. The awards form a pivotal part of the Women in Credit brand which Credit Strategy continues to grow through a series of forums and networking events.
Maria Harros, Atom Bank, Women in Credit awards judge
"It means so much to me to be a judge on the Women in Credit Awards, in fact I have judged every year since inception, and I intend to carry on for many years to come. (…) There is a lot of evidence out there that suggests women are less likely to push themselves forward, so to have a platform like the Women in Credit Awards that not only gives a space to celebrate diversity but actually encourages it helps have a wider impact on the industry. The testament to this is the ever increasing number of nominations every year we judge! This year I have invited one of the winners from last year to do a Ted Talk for our women in business committee to share her story. I was absolutely bowled over when I read her nomination that I wanted more people to hear her story as she is truly inspirational!"

SUZI RUFFELL - 2020 Host

Suzi’s innovative style captivates audiences with her engrossing tales of social ineptitude. Lauded as ‘a real stand up gem’ by The Guardian this young independent woman celebrates her working class roots with a sideways look at the world.

Regarded as one of best up and coming acts, Suzi was nominated for the Best Breakthrough Act at The Chortle Awards in 2017. She is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across Britain. Fast establishing herself on the live circuit supporting Alan Carr, Josh Widdicombe and Kevin Bridges on tour she then went onto have a sell-out double header tour with Romesh Ranganathan in the spring of 2015. Her 2016 and 2017 runs at the Edinburgh Festival saw her sell-out and receive critical acclaim nabbing the working-class comedy crown of her generation.
