This year nominations were received from 56 different countries and provided a vivid look at the inspiring work that women - and men - around the world are doing to support the economic empowerment of women. The recipients cover a wide range of activities on six continents and we are proud to be able to recognize the vital work that they do, often with few resources and many obstacles.
TIAW will be presenting the awards on October 18, 2019 during a special dinner at the Royal Automobile Club of Australia in Sydney, Australia as part of the TIAW - Women Chiefs of Enterprises International (WCEI) Forum (October 17 - 18, 2019).
Congratulations to all the recipients who are making all the difference in the world!
