Women

Changing

The World

Awards

Presented by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York & Dr. Tererai Trent

We believe that when women come together with a collective intention magic happens.


The Women Changing The World Awards are a global awards program recognising the work of incredible women making a positive difference in the world across a range of industries and areas including business, sustainability, leadership, health, education, product development, innovation and technology.

The Women Changing the World Awards aim is to elevate, celebrate, connect and support women in their journey as changemakers, trailblazers and leaders.

The UN states that achieving gender equality is of crucial importance in reaching the 17 sustainable development goals by 2030 and explains that women are the key to changing the world:
“Achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment is integral to each of the 17 goals. Only by ensuring the rights of women and girls across all the goals will we get to justice and inclusion, economies that work for all, and sustaining our shared environment now and for future generations.”

THESE AWARDS RECOGNISE, ACKNOWLEDGE AND CELEBRATE.
