Joanna Robinson, MD of ventilation manufacturer Mansfield Pollard, has been named on Northern Power Women’s Future List, which recognises the influencers and change makers of the future who are already making a difference to their environments and communities.
The list was revealed at the third annual Northern Power Women Awards, which took place last month at the Hilton Hotel, Manchester to mark International Women’s Day.
Northern Power Women is a collaborative campaign that aims to accelerate gender diversity from the North of England. It encourages the transformation of business culture to increase opportunities for women in business and showcase role models and best practice businesses that are driving and leading economic growth.
Robinson said: “I feel privileged to have been named on the Northern Power Women’s Future List, in the company of some exceptional business women and industry leaders.
“I am extremely proud to represent Mansfield Pollard on this list and would like to thank my team for helping me to promote manufacturing and engineering to girls and women with the hope that we will inspire them to pursue careers within the industry.”
Northern Power Women founder Simone Roche said: “Northern Power Women aims to harness all talent, accelerate gender pay equality and provide people with the knowledge and skills they need to drive their careers forward – all against the backdrop of the Northern Powerhouse agenda.
“We engage with women and men from all industries and business areas as ‘agents of change’ and connect, collaborate and celebrate their achievements as campaign champions and advocates to drive gender balance from the North of England.”
