Women in Defence UK Awards 2023


This year marks the 8th Annual Women in Defence UK Awards. Starting as a LinkedIn group in 2011, Women in Defence UK has grown into one of the largest independent communities of individuals and organisations that celebrates and recognises the achievements of those working in defence of the nation.

The awards celebrate the very best talent from across the defence sector, with ten categories and hundreds of nominations culminating in an incredible awards ceremony at the end of the year. The awards dinner brings people from all over the UK together to inspire and showcase the brilliant individuals who work in Defence. With the nomination window now open this is your opportunity to nominate an exceptional woman, man, individual, or team working in defence of the nation.
