Thank you all for your interest and generous support for the AmCham Women of Influence Awards!
We are extremely excited to announce that the 19th Women of Influence Awards are moving to February 21, 2023 (Tue) to kick off the month-long celebrations of International Women's Day in Hong Kong! We hope you will join us for an inspiring lunch and awards ceremony at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong to celebrate the incredible women who have been nominated for these awards.
The 19th WOI Awards seamlessly align with the theme of 2023 International Women's Day, #EmbraceEquity, inviting all women and their allies to make the world a more equitable place. Ahead of IWD, we will discuss ways to create sustainable pathways for the growth of women from all walks of life, the under-represented and the community at large. Through meaningful and impactful dialogues, let us inspire, and be inspired, by what the future of women will look like.
Hong Kong is a global city with many dedicated women leaders who transform Hong Kong into a better and more inclusive place. Companies have also stepped up in diversity and inclusion efforts to forge positive change and drive sustainable success for all. The Awards will play a part to actively support and embrace equity as we honor the amazing achievements of these heroes. It will be a celebration of the achievements of ALL of us that is not to be missed.
Stay tuned for more WOI programming in the lead up to the Awards in February. Events details will be available via the WOI event page as well as social media channels of AmCham.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2023!
This year we celebrate our 19th Annual Women of Influence Awards by expanding our focus beyond our community of members and supporters to include all women and their allies that are striving to make the world a more equitable place; creating sustainable pathways for the growth of women from all walks of life, advocating for those most underrepresented, and inspiring the community to reimagine what the future for women looks like.
We look forward to welcoming our community back face-to-face to listen to inspiring speakers and participate in interactive workshops ahead of our Conference and to recognize and celebrate the Women of Influence award nominees and winners at this exciting and long-awaited in-person event! It will be an event not to be missed, where we will have a chance to reconnect after years of social distancing restrictions to consider what it means to reimagine a sustainable future for women and to honor the women and men of Hong Kong who work tirelessly to elevate and support women who are working to make such reimagined future a reality.
The last several years have been challenging for everyone; as we begin to see light at the end of the tunnel the WOI wants to help everyone leverage new opportunities that have resulted from COVID-19 and to take advantage of a new-found open-mindedness to focus on how we empower ourselves to emerge stronger and more positive than ever about the journey that lies ahead. We will focus on sustainability and leadership, on our mental and physical health, on learning about alternative investing in sustainable initiatives, and on community building and the power of giving back.
Too long have we been hindered by the global environment; it's time to rekindle relationships, build new ones, and rejoin in our shared mission of changing the future through woman empowerment.
There is enormous talent in Hong Kong deserving recognition, and a celebration of their achievements. The Women of Influence Committee and the American Chamber greatly appreciate those who take the time and effort to nominate outstanding award candidates.
Now in their 19th year, the AmCham Women of Influence Awards highlight women who have strived to make Hong Kong a more livable place for women from all walks of life during these challenging times. The Awards are also an exciting and important recognition of outstanding supporters such as male allies and companies. This year, we have added a new award – Woman Champion of Disadvantaged Groups & Minorities – to directly address sustainability and the pandemic to support the 2023 theme.
