10 May 2017
Congratulations to Vandita Pant, Group Treasurer who has been announced a winner at the Asian Woman of Achievement Awards 2017 in the Professions category.
The awards, now in their 18th year, celebrate the huge contribution made by high achieving Asian women in Britain both professionally and in their communities, by being inspiring role models. This year the award categories were Arts & Culture, Media, Business, Sports, Profession, Entrepreneur, Science & Technology and Public Service.
The 2017 winners were announced at a star-studded event in London on Wednesday 10 May in the presence of Princess Badiya bint El Hassan of Jordan; The Rt. Hon. Amber Rudd MP, The Home Secretary; Jimmy Choo OBE, shoe designer; chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Sara Thornton CBE; The Rt. Hon. Diane Abbott MP, The Shadow Home Secretary; and Dato’ Soo Min Yeoh, Executive Director of YTL Corporation Berhad.
From the only female founder and managing partner of a private equity advisory business in Europe to a para-climber, this year’s list of winners featured an incredibly diverse and exciting group of women. Despite their varied backgrounds, the winners are united by their shared ability to inspire, and their determination to drive positive change in their respective fields.
Accepting the award, Vandita Pant said ‘Let the limitations that others impose on us never ever define us, but only our potential. If even just one more woman gets inspired to reach for her full potential as a result of this recognition, this would be worth its weight in gold!
