We first launched the 'Women in Accounting' initiative on International Women's Day in 2018, as a way to honor and recognize women who are driving change and creating opportunities for the next generation within the Accounting and Bookkeeping industry.
Since then, we've had over 1500 nominations globally and shared the stories of our 200 winners to date, and we can't wait to do the same this year.
This year, we're focusing on celebrating the unique and diverse stories of women in our industry, striving towards personal and professional progress.
It’s about reflecting on the struggle to ensure we break down the limitations, barriers, discrimination, and inequality that women face, recognising that none of our experiences are the same and we all (men and women alike) have work to do to make real change.
It’s about making intentional, meaningful changes to champion different voices, and to make space to listen to a range of lived experiences that don’t reflect our own.
Nominate a woman in your network today, whether it's a woman you work with, a woman whose passion and dedication inspire you, or a woman who has acted as a mentor or guide on your professional journey.
After April 6th, the judges will receive the award submissions and allocate a score of 1-10 for each question.
Our judging criteria this year will focus on the following key pillars:
What have our nominees achieved professionally, and how has that been informed by their unique lived experience / story.
How are our nominees actively and practically encouraging the next generation of female leaders in our industry?
How does the work our nominees do support and inspire others to reach their potential, and claim the full confidence of their strength as a woman?
Some credit will be given to nominees that receive multiple nominations, but only one award submission per person will be accepted. The judging panel is responsible for determining the score allocation for each question. The scores for each question will be totalled, along with any additional credit for multiple nominations.
The final total will determine the shortlist of the Top 50.
