  • Congratulations to CIDO’s Chief Executive, Cara Dallat, who was awarded 'Social Leader of the Year' Award at the N.I. Women's Awards 2019. A great achievement especially as she was nominated alongside an accomplished line up of women. This is the first year that the Awards have been introduced in Northern Ireland after their success in other regions across the UK and Ireland. Their aim is to celebrate outstanding women’s achievements across Northern Ireland.
