Discover women who accelerate change through activism and enterprise.
Women Social Leaders are the connectors, essential activators of change, and futurecentric economic actors.
Servane Mouazan, CEO and Founder Ogunte says: “The Women's Social Leadership Awards are not about fluffiness and cupcakes. The women who have won the Women’s Social Leadership Awards over the years are real achievers and are not coasting on the buzz. They are incredible role models, challengers, and impactful decision-makers. They are making waves in communities, at government level, raise awareness about facts that no-one wants to see, and also lead citizen movements against all odds.
Our role is to show the world that these social entrepreneurs and activists do create massive ripple effects and that it is worth looking at social and environmental change through a gender lens.”
What the Women Social Leadership Award winners and finalists have in common, among other, is:
1- They are experts in their respective fields, don't get easily distracted.
2- They keep focused on developing this expertise and surround themselves with people who can surgically help them deliver a positive impact
3- They walk the talk, everything they say, advise, teach, has been tested.
