Her Worth Woman of the Year Awards

Her Network has unveiled the official nominees for the 2018 Her Network Woman of the Year (HNWOTY) Awards, which returns for a second edition on Sunday, December 2nd, 2018.

Every year, HNWOTY celebrates outstanding women of impact changing the narrative through exceptional work in their fields. The Founder, Nkem Onwudiwe speaking on the idea behind the theme for this year – ‘Her Year of Greatness’- stated “The path of greatness has already been paved for us; we just have to be courageous enough to walk in it so we chose to use this tag as a call to action for women to step into their greatness, unapologetically”. An important factor to consider this year is the growing number of superlative women in various sectors making an impact in their organizations and communities and doing so with bold expositions.
