The Women on the Move Awards are both a way to support the women who do this important work, and also a way to tell a positive story of survival, reliance and the contribution they make in their communities in the UK. The awards help the women gain recognition for their work and raise their profile through the media attention they gain.
The awards, founded by Zrinka Bralo, CEO of Migrants Organise Ltd and delivered in partnership with UN Refugee Agency and WOW – Women of the World festival, also celebrate people who champion refugees and migrants in the UK.
Also, the media award named after Sue Lloyd-Roberts recognises journalists whose reporting accurately conveys the protection needs of refugee and migrant women.
