The Asian Women of Achievement Awards - held in association with Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets for the last seven years and hosted by Real Business and Caspian Media - celebrate the achievements of Britain's most inspiring Asian women and their contribution to our society in a range of sectors. Pinky Lilani OBE, entrepreneur and founder of the awards, said: "Each of this year's winners are a credit to the British Asian community and are an inspiration to the next generation of women. In 1999, when we started the Asian Women of Achievement Awards, a handful of Asian women enjoyed prominent positions in British life. Today, with Lord Davies' report ringing in our ears, there is an unprecedented opportunity for Asian women to push for, and achieve, opportunities they may never have previously considered."
