TIAW World of Difference 100 Award Nominations Open Today



Join the TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards Movement: Be a leader. Make a difference. Nominate a candidate today.

Each year, the TIAW World of Difference 100 Award recognizes women and men who advance the economic empowerment of women, whether on a small scale in the developing world, or effecting change in the boardrooms of the business capitals of the world.  Each year, the awards celebrate the inspiring, courageous, tenacious and creative achievements of the extraordinary champions of women’s economic advancement.  Since the award was established in 2008, close to 500 women and men from more than 80 countries have been honored for their contributions.  Indeed, the TIAW World of Difference 100 Award has garnered worldwide attention for the high caliber of achievement and change leadership demonstrated by its recipients, the impressive reach the awards throughout the world and by their growing impact.

Now, you can be part of this important movement to honor and encourage women’s economic independence and power.  Because when women flourish, families, communities and countries flourish alongside them.  Take a few minutes to think of someone who you know has truly made a difference to the empowerment of women.  Whether your candidate has a high profile or works anonymously, whether they move in power circles or small villages, whether their impact is local, regional or international, tell us how your candidate has made a difference.

Submitting a nomination is easy.  Just fill out the form on the TIAW website with details of your coordinates and those of your nominee and then tell us, IN 300 WORDS OR LESS, how your candidate has paved the way for women’s economic empowerment in any ONE of the categories.  Tell us the story of how she – or he – has overcome barriers or persisted in difficult circumstances, or perhaps how they have been inspiring or educating others to support the economic empowerment of women.  If you can include some numbers or statistics to tell us what the impact has been, that is even better (but not mandatory).

The TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards are inspiring, motivating and uplifting.  Add your voice to this international movement  that is truly making all the difference in the world.
