Honoring women across industries and countries whose works create societal, economic and environmental impact

The independent and international „She For Social Impact Awards“ honor women in the fields of „Technology“, „Science“, „Finance“, „Business“ and „Culture“, whose impact-led works address the world’s most pressing issues through innovation and visionary approaches. These women challenge the business as usual or status quo in their respective fields to drive advanced solutions for a sustainable future.

Because the truth is – The world is at the brink of societal and economic disasters due to climate change, and only systemic changes in society and economics will help. Increased collaboration across industries and regions, the use of science and new technologies for scaling fast as well as the willingness to take bold actions and to overcome traditional boundaries have never been needed as much as today.



Each winner will be invited into the advisory board of the Awards, thus over time creating a truly diverse and international community of dedicated impact-led role models who inspire to take actions.

The Awards have been initiated by Nadine Bruder – award-winning strategist, entrepreneur, advisor to senior executives and member of the Federal German Artificial Intelligence Association. The Awards are realized through sponsorships from companies and institutions that share the Awards‘ mission. More about sponsorship opportunities down below or directly apply here.

She For Social Impact Awards Nominees are curated and selected by the advisory and judging board, a group of impact-led leaders in their respective fields and trusted by their peers. Nominees and Winners are evaluated against field criteria.

Only four (4) nominees, including one (1) winner, can be chosen for each field of nomination. And one more entry of each field that is worthy of recognition can be considered for the Public Choice Award.

  • Each Advisory and Judging Board Member independently curates potential nominees and rates each of them based on category criteria.
  • Members collectively define the top entries that are then included on field-specific Award shortlists for further evaluation by the Advisory and Judging Board.
  • Members evaluate a second time the shortlisted entries based on the field criteria, and eventually cast ballots to determine the Winners. In the event of a tie, the Chairwomen casts the tie-breaking vote.
