London, Jan.15 (ANI): A search is on for the most influential Muslim women in Britain, for inclusion on the first Muslim Women Power List. Companies and individuals are being invited to make nominations for the awards, run by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in association with The Times and Emel, the Muslim lifestyle magazine.The Muslim Women Power List is intended as a celebration of the 100,000 Muslim women in Britain who have reached the top of their field or are on the fast track to success.
The aim is to challenge the view that Muslim women conform to a stereotype.
The commission also wants to encourage mentoring and networking among Muslim women to help people fulfil their potential.
The list is intended to focus on women in business. But those in other influential female roles, such as teachers or civil servants, can also be considered. The winners will be honoured at a dinner in Manchester on March 24. (ANI)
