Our Goodwill Ambassador for 2021/22 will be announced Friday 5th March. Nominations are now CLOSED – thank you to all who nominated.

Assist exists to support and promote and inspire professional women and in 2020, launched a new role as ‘Goodwill Ambassador’, with the aim of acknowledging the enlightened leadership or practice of someone significant.  Our inaugural Ambassador is the remarkable Yasmin Khan, whose tenure lasts until March; we now need your help to identify the next woman who will support our work, influence change and leave a lasting legacy in the Tees Valley. The Goodwill Ambassador is key to Assist’s long-term strategy and has a seat at the Assist Strategy Board which meets once a quarter for a stake in this dynamic network.


Assist celebrated ten year’s service last year and launched an annual ambassador award to recognise one amazing business or professional woman from the Tees Valley, open to every sector, industry and for businesses of all ages and sizes. The ambassador awards 2020 were the leading celebration of Assists IWD20 – Reclaiming Hidden Teesside Women #UntoldStories on the 6th March 2020 in Middlesbrough Town Hall, shining a light on some of the best, most innovative and most determined Teesside women. This year, we will again crown our Goodwill Ambassador for 2021 on IWD21 – 5th March, the perfect day to celebrate the new GA21/22.

This is a 12 month honour taking us to International Women’s Day 2022, when next January we will be seeking our next ambassador, planting a tree and plaque right next to this years winner in our designated space for Tees Valley women and girls to visit with their families as we give recognition to you and other fellow ambassadors. The application form for our Goodwill Ambassador 2021/22 is below, please send all too with the subject ‘GA Application 2021’. 


Our Goodwill Ambassador for 2020/21 is Yasmin Khan.
