We’re thrilled to announce that for the second year running RIO’s Lindsey Hall has been recognised for the The annual NatWest WISE100!

Lindsey was included on the list last year and is amongst 18 women nominated two years in a row. Congratulations Lindsey!

The annual NatWest WISE100 recognises the most inspiring and influential women in social enterprise, impact investment and mission-driven business.

It’s a real honour and a lovely surprise to be featured for a second year amongst the brilliant women social entrepreneurs involved with WISE100. We have never lived in a time when ambitious, successful leaders are more needed and as the WISE100 list shows there are plenty of excellent women doing an amazing job. A powerful network is emerging – let’s make the most of it!” – Lindsey Hall, CEO at Real Ideas Organisation

The names of the UK’s 100 leading women in social enterprise and impact investment were revealed on the 29th October, as attendees celebrated female leadership and explored the theme of ‘sharing the stage’ to involve more women in the impact economy.

WISE100 builds on the work of Pioneers Post and NatWest to highlight the achievements of the social enterprise sector through the NatWest SE100 Index, which features the UK’s top 100 social enterprises. NatWest has supported the social enterprise sector for over 20 years, and through its Women in Business programme provides dedicated support to female entrepreneurs.
