The Cultural Leadership Programme has launched its search for the sector’s top 50 future female leaders.

"There are nowhere near enough women in positions of power and influence, whether it be in the cultural and creative industries or other sectors. We need to do everything we can to enable and encourage the next generation.” Jenni Murray OBE, Presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and Chair of Women to Watch judging panel

Nominations are being invited for a prestigious new list which will celebrate the achievements of some of the most ambitious and talented women in the cultural and creative industries. CLP is inviting established leaders (Director level figures and senior independent consultants) from across the UK to nominate women who have already made a noticeable impact within the sector, and have the potential to rise to the top, for inclusion on the Cultural Leadership Programme’s inaugural ‘Women to Watch’ list for 2010.

Submissions are invited from across the creative and cultural sectors, including advertising, archives, crafts, design, libraries, literature, museums, music, performing and visual arts, the historic environment and other creative businesses. (Please see link below for downloadable nomination forms.) Nominees should be emerging to mid career leaders - women who have the potential to make a national impact in senior leadership roles such as artistic director, chief executive, managing director, chair or organisational lead. Women working within the creative or cultural sector within the U.K. are eligible to be nominated for inclusion on the list.

The deadline for entries is 29 January 2010.
