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.
- 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.
