“Behind every great town there are great women”

BCW were proud to join the “Great Women” Campaign and felt privileged to be invited.  Claire Whelan their Finance Director was approached to join the campaign which is linked to this year’s 100th anniversary of women having the right to vote.  This is a momentous milestone and something which should be celebrated, it is great to support the local borough & celebrate the success of local women and their achievements.  Let’s hope the campaign goes on to inspire young women and create more “Great Women.”

Claire Whelan commented, “It is profound that a 100 years ago I would not have been allowed to have the education and career opportunities I have enjoyed to date. I am therefore very proud to be part of the launch for this excellent campaign to celebrate the role “Great Women” play in Burnley.”
