Jayn Sterland, managing director of health and beauty pioneer Weleda UK, has been voted one of 100 inspirational female leaders in the international CEO Today Annual Business Women of the Year Awards from CEO Today magazine.
The highly anticipated awards aim to recognise and celebrate the accomplishments of women leaders who have significantly impacted the business world over the past year.
Diversity and inclusion are increasingly critical to business success, which is why CEO Today seeks to shine a light on the female leaders shaping industries and breaking down barriers.
The awards highlight the accomplishments of women who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership, innovation and resilience in their respective fields.
‘This year, more than ever, we’ve seen an incredible display of resilience, innovation and leadership in the face of unprecedented challenges. The women we honour today are not just leading their respective organizations to new heights but are also trailblazers for equality, diversity, and inclusion, setting the state for future generations.’
