Danielle Ayres, Senior Employment Law Solicitor at Gorvins Solicitors has secured a place on the Northern Power Women Future’s List for her pioneering work in the pregnancy and maternity field.
The Northern Power Women’s Future List recognises the influencers, leaders and change makers of the future who are already making a difference in their environments and communities. We are thrilled that Danielle has been named on the 2018 List.
Commenting on the achievement Danielle said, ‘I am delighted to be included on this year’s Northern Power Women Future List. To be recognised alongside the amazing and inspirational people, on both the Future and the Power List is an absolute honour. It is great to be part of the Northern Power Women community, which seems to be going from strength to strength, and rightly so.’
Danielle advises both employers and employees on all aspects of employment law and is now one of the UK’s go-to solicitors for pregnancy and maternity related cases. She has helped and advised hundreds of women who have been discriminated against by their employers as a result of being pregnant or on maternity leave. Danielle is heavily involved with the campaign group Pregnant then Screwed, volunteers for Working Mums and Gorvins are also part of the Working Forward Campaign run by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
Simone Roche, founder and CEO of Northern Power Women said of the awards: “We received a huge number of nominations for our awards this year, especially from the North West, and an impressive increase in the number of men nominated this year. Such an amazing response shows the range of incredible women and men working to promote gender equality in and from the North. Of course, that made it tough for the judges, but our winners are an incredible group of people and I am so happy and proud to see and help promote the amazing work they’ve been doing.”
