Remember to nominate to 2019's Young Female Leader of the Year

On 31 October the nomination for the Young Leading Woman of the Year closes. Jönköping county still shows low numbers in the national measurements of the amount of women on corporate boards and self-employees, together we want to change this. Therefore, nominate a colleague or student in your vicinity who is a role model and inspiration to others.

At aretsungaledandekvinna.sethe public can nominate women under 35 who live in the county of Jönköping, until 31 October. After this the selection process will begin and in February 2020 a list of leadership role models will be published.

Jönköping University is involved in supporting the project which is run by Science Park and the Chamber of Commerce (Handelskammaren), our President Agneta Marell is one of the jury members. Several students and alumni have been nominated over the years and last year Helén Truong, a former student from Jönköping University, was named the winner.
