ABOUT HNWOTY

The Her Network Woman of the Year awards is designed to publicly celebrate, showcase and honour women in diverse industries who are doing great work i.e positively affecting lives/changing the narrative through their work and leaving a legacy for generations to come.
The Platform seeks to celebrate all women whose work is of great impact to immediate and extended communities. To reflect this, categories presented are changed every year and both known and unsung women in different sectors will be identified by leveraging on the public submission through the nomination process and which eventually leads up to one woman per industry/sector to be awarded and celebrated as the Woman of the Year.
