Delivered by EWIF, an organisation designed to offer free services to franchises with an under representation of women in their network and offer advice to women looking to franchise their business or become franchisees, the EWIF Awards first launched in 2011. Prizes will be awarded for New Woman Franchisor of the Year, New Woman Franchisee of the Year, Woman Franchisor Employee of the Year, Woman Service Provider of the Year, Woman Franchisee of the Year and Woman Franchisor of the Year, at an awards ceremony in London on March 16. An additional prize will be presented to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to women in franchising. The NatWest-sponsored award, for which entrants must be nominated, last year went to Rosemary Conley of Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness.
