UCLan will be assisting the shortlisting process to help determine the winners and is encouraging businesswomen across the county to come forward and enter.
Categories include Rising Star, Woman of the Year SME Business and Most Supporting Business Promoting Diversity and Citizenship.
Entries must be received by Friday May 4 and the winners will be announced at an awards lunch held at Tatton Park on Thursday July 5.

Professor Chris Pyke, Executive Dean of the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting the Barclays Women in Business Awards 2018. The North West has a thriving business community and it is important that we acknowledge success while at the same time encouraging more women to pursue their ambitions, with the help of the business support initiatives within our School.
