Professor Maura McAdam recognised at the 2019 Irish Women’s Awards

At the Irish Women’s Awards 2019 ceremony on the 21st of Jan, I had the honour of being recognized for my contributions and commitment to education. The inaugural Irish Women’s Awards saw over 200 guests attend on Monday 21 January, with 31 award categories to recognise and celebrate women in a variety of industries and professions. The ceremony was delivered by event specialists Creative Oceanic.

“The awards also provided a platform to thank and recognise meritorious ladies for their attributions to our society as well as for the exceptional work they carry out on a daily basis that often remain un-known or even un-appreciated.” Creative Oceanic.

This recognition in the Services to Education category is another milestone in an exciting and rewarding acadmic career.

These types of awards are important as they showcase examples of courage, passion, skill, commitment and success that feature in women and provide a platform to encourage women at all ages to achieve their goals and spread the message that women can be successful leaders, entrepreneurs, influencers, scientists and CEOs. I therefore see this award not as an achievement but as a responsibility, with my responsibility being the empowerment of women through education.”
