Powerwomen Awards 2024

Championing Women in the Wealth Sector

Citywealth is delighted to open its thirteenth 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.

Women comprised 45% of all new Fortune 500 board appointments in 2021, a new high, while Black directors were 26% of new appointees, a tad lower than 2020 after a surge that year, according to a report released by executive search and leadership consulting firm Heidrick & Struggles. Whilst we must celebrate this change, as one lawyer at a leading UK law firm said, “if you don’t keep your foot on the peddle, things go backwards quickly.” Let’s continue to keep the pressure on and keep #payingitforward for future generations.

The Powerwomen Awards 2024 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.

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 are now open to organisations and women located globally. As this is a larger audience to serve, geographically, the contest format has now changed.
