Woman Who is not about one day in the calendar year and our celebration of the Awards on 1st October at the beautiful Coombe Abbey Hotel in Warwickshire continues.
Congratulations Kim Rowell of the BBC, Winner of a Woman Who Achieves Inspiring & Outstanding Leader Award 2021 Sponsored by Air Aesthetics
The Woman Who Achieves & Solopreneur Awards took place on Friday 1st October. This year we held a hybrid event with many joining us in the Marquee at Coombe Abbey and those that couldn’t, joining online.
Congratulations Kim on your achievements and thank you to all the Winners and Finalists for your support and for making this event into an amazing hybrid Awards event.
Kim has since joined the Woman Who Achieves Academy and will continue her journey with Woman Who over the coming months, so watch out for more from Kim.
‘It was such a lovely shock to be announced as a winner – I’d spent the afternoon wiping away tears from the beautiful keynote speeches given from the enormously inspiring Woman Who Achieves community, and then to be recognised myself was humbling.
Thank you for this accolade, I look forward to paying it forward and hope to work alongside this brilliant initiative a lot more in the future.’

BBC Commissioner Kim Rowell produces award-winning documentaries for young adults; a career highlight saw the Cancer Act debated in Parliament as a direct result of her work.
Her achievements include a ‘Women of the Future Media Award’; being listed as a Financial Times ‘Kindness and Leadership: Leading Light’; named as a Yahoo! Finance’s ‘HEROEs Future Women Leaders’ for commitment to gender diversity; recognised as a ‘Rising Star’ on Management Today’s ‘Inspiring Women in Business’ and as an Honouree of Campaign Magazine’s ‘Female Frontiers’ Awards for both ‘Championing Change’ and ‘Conquering Creativity’.
In this category, we were looking for an outstanding leader who inspires their team and those around them. Kim Rowell showed a keen desire to develop young talent from diverse backgrounds and academic pathways with a strong focus on influencing change at an institutional level. Her main driver was, she told the judges “To watch her team fulfill their potential and bask in it!” Putting people at the heart of what she does was evident throughout her application and is shown in her professional role as well as that in the community promoting kindness in adults and children.
