Many of today’s achievements of women in business receive scant media coverage. However, globally three quarters of the employment opportunities created between 1990 and 2006 have been taken by women and, as Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen stated: ‘Women are the most powerful vector of economic and social change’.
The French newspaper La Tribune, in partnership with Women Equity for Growth, run by Dunya Bouhacene, is kicking off a campaign aimed at recognizing women’s leadership abilities and enhancing the status of women in the business environment, either as business executives or entrepreneurs.
The application is open to any women who, through their work, have brought their contribution to the development and transformation of France. La Tribune will publish weekly the profiles of each of the nominees so as to promote and showcase their achievements.
On the 8th of November, during the “La Tribune Women’s Award” ceremony in Paris, five of the nominated women will be awarded in the categories: Finance, Green Business, Technology & Media, The Luxury Industry, Developing Countries.
