A professor at Teesside University has been recognised as one of the top role models for business women working in the North.
Professor Jane Turner gained the accolade after being named as one of the most influential women in the Northern Power Women Power List 2018.
The list shines a light on those making a difference to the region by accelerating diversity.
Professor Turner joins a host of notable women on the list including award-winning journalist and BBC presenter Stephanie McGovern and Baroness Sue Campbell, chair of the Youth Sports Trust.
“I am delighted to have been selected for the Northern Power Women Power List and honoured to be standing alongside so many inspirational and influential leaders from the Northern region,” said Professor Turner. “It is vitally important that there are female role models who will mentor and support young women and drive for equality in business.”
The Power List was originally launched in 2016 and included 50 notable women.
Professor Turner has also been announced as the keynote speak for the first ever Tees Businesswomen Awards, which are being held in November.
The awards will celebrate women in business on Teesside. It is hoped the awards will inspire a new generation to succeed in business and lead to more female entrepreneurs joining the business community.
Professor Turner added: “Through this event, I hope men and women come together to engage in the awards, celebrate success and showcase the brilliant women of our region and their achievements.”
