2018 World of Difference Awards: Advancing Economic Empowerment of Women Worldwide

Deadline: 1 November 2018

The International Alliance for Women (TIAW) is seeking nominations for 2018 World of Difference Awards to recognize women, and men, whose efforts have advanced the economic empowerment of women locally, regionally or worldwide.

Whether the candidate is working on a small scale in the developing world or making an impact at the topic of the world’s biggest businesses, whether your candidate is well known or an unsung heroine or hero, they want you to tell them the stories of the people whose extraordinary achievements are furthering the economic empowerment of women.

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT as defined by TIAW means contributing to the ability of women to earn a living or in some way directly contributing to the economic betterment of other women, as distinct from other worthy contributions that are not within the scope of these awards.
