The Powerwomen Awards 2021 - recognising individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth

Citywealth is delighted to open its ninth year awards programme to champion women in the wealth sector and highlight the female leaders of today and tomorrow. The awards spotlight individuals and companies who support caregiving responsibilities, female leadership, and celebrate diversity. The number of women running Fortune 500 companies has hit an all-time record of 37, say CNN, which is 7.4%. 20 years ago there were only two female CEO’s.  By working together and inclusively we can do so much more. In 2012, a Dow Jones study found that the overall median proportion of female executives is 7.1% at successful companies and 3.1% at unsuccessful companies, demonstrating the value that having more females can potentially bring to a management team.

Therefore, the Powerwomen Awards 2021 will both recognise individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth, and will also create a platform for best practice to collectively exercise positive social influence on the sector.

Awards format change - VIP cocktail winners parties London and New York - March 2021

Watch 3 minute youtube video from Editor Karen Jones about the updated contest

During 2020 the decision was taken to widen the remit of the Powerwomen Awards to recognise women in North America. The categories in the contest will now reflect this. As this is a larger audience to serve, geographically, the contest format has now changed. The contestants will be judged in the same way with submissions, industry judges and online but there will no longer be an awards winners gala dinner. Instead there will be a cocktail party, free to attend in both London and New York by VIP invitation to announce the winners and to meet the contestants. As per the terms and conditions, those entering will pay an automatic Winners Package fee and the trophy, logo and marketing licence will be received automatically in advance of the Winners cocktail parties. Both those shortlisted and winners may attend either or both cocktail events.
