Nominations for The Baton Awards 2021
Thank you for your interest in The Baton Awards 2021. We appreciate your time in considering to nominate a trailblazing woman from a diverse racial group in Britain.
MAKING A NOMINATION
If you know of someone who has made an outstanding contribution and demonstrated excellence in their field, who has paved the way, and whose strides reflect the ethos of the Batons Awards, we welcome you to nominate them for a 2021 Baton Award. The Baton Awards celebrates women from diverse racial groups from the Past, Present, and Future by acknowledging Britain’s females from diverse racial groups’ pathfinders, and inspiring future pioneers, across diverse sectors. Nominations can be made for yourself, a friend, acquaintance, colleague, associate or family member. You can nominate the same person for multiple award categories but must use a separate nomination form for each category. Similarly, if you wish to nominate more than one person or group, please use a separate nomination form for each nominee. In order to facilitate our blind-judging process, please do NOT include the Nominee’s name in the form fields, with the exception of ‘First Name’ and ‘Surname’. This is especially important in the biography section and those thereafter.
