Celebrating Swindon and Wiltshire’s most inspiring women – 2023

By Nick Batten on 27 March, 2023

To mark International Women’s Day 2023, which this year took place on Wednesday 8th March, we’re celebrating some of Swindon and Wiltshire’s most inspiring women. 

Through our social media channels, we asked our readers which women in our community inspire them and created a list of 20. The list is printed in our Feb/March magazine and from Wednesday 1st March, every weekday throughout the month we are profiling and championing each of these fantastic women online and via our social feeds.

Today we put the spotlight on Stephanie Nunley

Stephanie is a Solicitor and Business Development Manager at Bower Bailey, based at Regent Circus, Swindon. Having qualified in 2000 she spent 12 years as a litigation lawyer before moving into her current role at Bower Bailey.
