Ruth, one of 37 finalists, has been shortlisted in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Leader of the Year category.

Ruth said:

“I am very excited to be a finalist on The Black British Business Awards 2016 – STEM Leader category.  I am really looking to use this opportunity to showcase nurses, community practitioners and health visitors as entrepreneurs. Caring is our business and the current climate is making it so difficult to do our business well.”

The Black British Business Awards is the awards programme which recognises and celebrates the exceptional performance and outstanding achievements of black entrepreneurs and professionals in Britain.

The winners will be announced during a ceremony at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London on 6 October 2016.  Good luck Ruth!
