Celebrating women from diverse racial groups from the Past, Present & Future

The Baton Awards team are excited to announce that nominations for The Baton Awards 2022 will open on May 16th.

We are also excited to share that it is our fifth annual ceremony and this year will mark our first awards ceremony to take place in person since lockdown restrictions eased in the UK - and the sense of joy and relief among those who are already keen to attend, is palpable. So, please start gathering up your ideas on which inspirational woman from a diverse background that you’d like to nominate this year. Also, why not start thinking about who will be sitting at your table this year as we organise our very first sit-down meal event to celebrate our five-year anniversary!

All monies raised goes to registered domestic violence charity Strength with In Me Foundation registered charity no: 1165152
