LSH Auto has signed a sponsorship deal with Women of the Year Awards which will take place at Manchester’s Etihad on 11 October.

The event will celebrate female role models across all areas of society and business, entries remain open until 30 June.

Tracy Ellam, operations director for LSH Auto, said: “We’re passionate about celebrating female role models, so we’re really pleased to be supporting the Women of the Year Awards.

“The automotive industry has traditionally seen a much higher percentage of male colleagues than female colleagues. LSH Auto has a desire and appetite to change this.

“We know that diversity provides a range of experiences and perspectives that strengthen and add value to our collective performance. The Women of the Year Awards has such positive values that really align with our own.”

Ellam and Group Marketing Manager, Nikki Leonard, joined members of the Women of the Year (WOTY) board for the launch event. Attendees included WOTY president, writer and actress Sally Lindsay, WOTY Ambassador and Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords, Baroness Newlove, WOTY Directors Emma Elston MBE, Zalena Vandrewala, and Wendy Dean.

Two categories open for entries this year will be Businesswoman of the Year and Freeths Woman with Edge while the Emmeline Pankhurst Award – Woman of Achievement acknowledges the events’ move to Manchester, where the suffragette movement began.

Prior to the ceremony in October, Women of the Year have arranged networking events across the UK aimed at women working across different sectors including automotive, construction, manufacturing, retail and logistics.

The first networking event will be hosted by LSH Auto at its flagship site on Brighton Road, Stockport. LSH Auto will also host a networking event for business women at its Birmingham dealership in June.
