Top 25 Women of Influence®

A celebration of women driving impact and change.

The Top 25 Women of Influence® awards recognizes and celebrates the extraordinary accomplishments of self-identified women and gender-diverse role models. The awards acknowledge the unique achievements of diverse women representing various sectors, career stages, and contributions to the advancement of women. Each recipient has left their mark over the past year: contributing to the greater good through their initiatives; by reaching inspiring heights on the global stage; or in using their influence to drive demonstrated change.

What we look for:


From grassroots campaigns to global programs, these role models are leading the charge when it comes to impactful, inclusive, and inspiring action.


Breaking barriers to reach impressive heights on a global stage, these role models are inspirational examples of defining success on their own terms.


From sparking important conversations to setting a positive example, these role models are using their influence to drive wide-reaching change.

Nominations for the 2023 Awards are Now Open!

This year, we have expanded our program to include applications from across Canada and the United States of America. Applications will be accepted between December 1, 2022 – January 20, 2023, and you can nominate yourself or another individual. Please note that we will only contact those who are selected as a recipient of the awards for 2023. Our awards luncheon will take place on April 4, 2023. Please complete the following form (only complete applications will be considered):

  • We may reach out to you for verification of details, further information, or to inform you that your nominee has been selected. Your email will not be shared or used for any purpose beyond this application.
  • You can nominate yourself or another individual.
  • We are looking for role models who have accomplished notable achievements between January 2022 and December 2022. Tell us about the ground-breaking, envelope-pushing initiative(s) that the nominee has accomplished in the last year. Focus on specific accomplishments, initiatives, or milestones rather than an ongoing activity.
  • We believe that great movers and shakers inspire those around them to "move" and "shake" the status quo through their work and through the example they set and lead each day. Tell us about how the nominee has inspired others and created demonstrated change, while achieving and sustaining success on their own terms.
  • We measure influence by impact — the ripples that are made, the doors that are opened, the number of seats that are added to the proverbial decision-making table. How has the nominee used their position, platform, and/or reach to positively and meaningfully influence their community and beyond?
  • In a few words, tell us why you believe the nominee deserves to be recognized. If you are self-nominating, share more details about yourself—what drives you, what motivates you, and how will you build from the milestones you've recently achieved?
  • Please refer to our Privacy Policy or Contact Us with more questions
