The first awards’ ceremony for Ladies That Rock The Rock took place on Wednesday, 8th March at a Gala Dinner held at the Sunborn Hotel to coincide with International Women’s Day 2023, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
Organised by Ayelet Mamo Shay, the event celebrated the achievements and contributions of women to society in general and to the community of Gibraltar in particular. The event brought together women and men from different backgrounds, including business leaders and community members. During the Gala dinner, guests were treated to a range of inspirational activities, including an insightful panel, entertainment by a professional dancer, a singer and a magician, networking opportunities, a photo booth and a massive raffle with many great prizes.
Awards were presented to eight women from across different sectors in recognition of their achievements and who had been nominated by the people of Gibraltar.
Minister for Equality Samantha Sacramento presented the awards and highlighted the fact that this recognition should exist throughout the year and not just on International Woman’s Day.
Commenting on the event, Ayelet Mamo Shay said: “We definitely celebrated IWD in style! I have no doubt that next year we will find more great ladies and at some point we will make a collection of ladies that will appear in the second edition of my book The Ladies That Rock The Rock!”
The Ladies That Rock the Rock Team will continue to deliver workshops, delegations, events and much more during the year.
