    2020 TIAW AWARDEE Narrative Stories

  • 18 Feb 2020 12:21 AM | Anonymous

    The TIAW World of Difference Awards recognises women, and men, whose efforts have advanced the economic empowerment of women locally, regionally or worldwide. Whether working on a small scale in the developing world or making an impact at the topic of the world’s biggest businesses, whether well-known or an unsung heroine or hero, these are 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.

    In 2008, the World of Difference 100 Awards were created to honour those who were making a significant difference to the economic empowerment of women in several different categories.

    Achievement Highlights:

    • Pool of close to 700 influential recipients 2008 - 2019
    • 2019: 193 candidates nominated from countries collectively representing each continent in the world.

    TIAW now has connections to virtually all regions of the globe with influential participants, enabling the organization to exponentially expand its reach and most importantly individually and collectively change the world for women. 

    2019 TAIW WOD Award Program and Stories

  • 8 Oct 2015 8:05 AM | Anonymous

    TIAW has two awards programs to recognize extraordinary individuals whose efforts have advanced the economic empowerment of women locally, regionally or worldwide. TIAW recognizes one woman of distinguished, longstanding achievement through the TIAW World of Difference Lifetime Achievement Award and recognizes up to 100 recipients of the TIAW

    World of Difference 100 Award for those who have made a significant contribution to the economic empowerment of women. These distinguished awards are presented at the TIAW Awards Gala Ceremony, in conjunction with the TIAW Global Forum, a must-attend gathering of dynamic women from around the world.

    The TIAW World of Difference Lifetime Achievement Award is our most prestigious individual award. This honor is bestowed each year to one woman whose longstanding championship of women’s economic advancement is truly outstanding and has made an international impact.

    This year nominations were received from 54 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.
