Women in Pensions Awards process

The awards are open to those working for firms operating in the UK's pensions industry as well as those either working for, or governing, individual occupational pension schemes.

Nominees can be in roles including, but not limited to pensions management; trusteeship; actuarial; pensions and investment consulting; legal advice; investment management; fiduciary management; and scheme administration. Nominations can also be made for those involved in roles such as sales, marketing, or communications at organisations whose primary business is related to occupational pensions.

Please note that there is a strict limit of two entries per person. Women currently on maternity leave and women who have retired (at a date no earlier than 1 December 2021) can also be nominated.

Nominees will be judged predominantly on their achievements during the 2021/22 financial year, apart from those entering the Lifetime Achievement Award category.


To nominate, you simply complete some basic details about the person, company or scheme you are nominating. You can also nominate yourself. Nominations can be supported with an optional statement of a maximum 125 words.

The deadline for nominations is: Friday 22 April at 5pm

Only entries via the nomination system will be considered. It is up to the nominators to ensure contact details of those being nominated are correct. The panel reserves the right to close a category should the quality of entrants be deemed too low to judge; remove an entry if in the opinion of the judges the criteria has not been followed; or suggest another more appropriate category for entrants. The panel will take into account nominee responses as well as third party research such as websites and social media. The panel reserves the right to use public voting where appropriate. The decision of the chairperson is final.


Once nominations have been received, the nominee will be contacted and forwarded a list of questions that they will be required to complete in order to progress to the first round of judging. A shortlist will then be created from which an independent panel of expert judges will decide the winners in each category.
