Sheffield business woman, Kate Krachai, has been shortlisted for two prestigious regional business awards that celebrate the hard work of women in our region.
Kate Krachai, owner and founder of Quality Context, a Sheffield based pharmaceutical quality assurance company and analytical testing laboratory, has been shortlisted for two of the Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards.
Kate has been shortlisted for both SME Business of the Year and the Science, Engineering, Technology and Manufacturing (STEM) award, which she won in 2014.
The male dominated STEM industries have received a lot of press recently about how women are making progress but are still lagging behind men when it comes to the number of job roles.
Forward Ladies is the country’s biggest ever search for successful women in business, dedicated to encouraging the growth of women in industry, as well as celebrating the achievements of successful women.
Managing director of Forward Ladies Griselda Togobo said: “The calibre of entries has been increasing year on year, but this year we have a number of outstanding entries, which have attracted women from all ages, all professions and all walks of life.
“We also have categories to showcase the underrepresented women working in traditionally male dominated fields and have received some outstanding entries in these categories. The judges have seriously had their work cut out for them this year.”
