Float Digital Nominated for Devon & Cornwall Venus Awards
The Devon & Cornwall Venus Awards 2019 are on their way. Nominations have been pouring in and Float Digital are delighted to announce we have been selected. Allowing women to be celebrated in business, these awards truly are exceptional and drive gender equality in business. Celebrating their sixth year, in 2018 the awards were sold out with more than 100 guests attending and planners expect 2019 to be no different.
What are the awards?
The Venus awards were set up so that women would no longer be overlooked and denied the recognition that they deserve. It has since been named by Channel 4 ‘The Working Women’s Oscars’ and we could not be more proud to have been nominated for an award. The aim of setting up these awards was to make for a more inclusive society through mutual respect, rather than by forcing opinions on others.
