by 23 February 2024.

>> Submit your nomination here!

Women Who Advance‘ proudly continues to spotlight the exceptional talent within the international association community. For International Women’s Day 2024, we honor female association leaders, pioneers, and influencers who are at the forefront of fostering inclusion, empowering women from all walks of life, and creating spaces where every voice is heard and valued.

Associations play a key role as sector thought leaders and catalysts for innovation. At their very best, they act as a platform for uniting a rich tapestry of individuals and organisations, working collaboratively to shape the future of their respective fields. It’s this inbuilt purpose that ideally positions them to champion a culture of inclusivity.

About Women Who Advance
Women Who Advance is a celebration of the exceptional female talent within the international association community. In line with the International Women’s Day Theme 2024, we honor the achievements of female leaders, pioneers, and influencers who exemplify #InspiringInclusion. This year, we seek to highlight the importance of creating association spaces that are innovative and inclusive, where every voice is heard and valued. Through #InspireInclusion, we delve into the benefits associations gain by embracing diversity across all dimensions — gender, race, age, abilities, beliefs, body image, and identities — in their strategic approach and operations. By fostering inclusion at every level, from executive leadership to administrative staff and keynote speakers, we create environments that are not only innovative and dynamic but also representative and equitable.
