Ad Age has recognized and celebrated women in the advertising and marketing industry for decades.
The past year has seen significant milestones for female leaders, with multiple women elevated to senior appointments across agencies, brands and tech. We also finally saw more industry acknowledgment of issues affecting women such as fertility and menopause benefits—even as families struggled with the challenges of childcare and homeschooling during the pandemic. And now, it’s time once again for Ad Age to honor some of the best female leaders with the Leading Women awards.
This year, Leading Women is going global, expanding beyond the U.S. and Europe to reflect the growing international scope of senior roles. Many senior women now also have responsibilities that stretch across borders, as remote working and technology allows executives to connect internationally.
As we continue to search the globe for inspiring female leaders, we recognize there are many unsung talents in areas we don't often have the opportunity to cover. With that in mind, we are inviting all agencies and brands with outposts in Ukraine to nominate a colleague so that we can shine a light on their great work. All submission fees are waived for Ukraine-based nominees. Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
Ad Age will honor female executives who empower teams, build relationships, drive business results, advocate for diversity and inclusion, take risks and serve as catalysts for change.
