Welcome to the AmCham Women of Influence Awards 2021 Online Nomination System!
Now in their eighteenth year, the awards are an exciting and important recognition of outstanding women and their supporters in Hong Kong.
We are excited to announce a new award for this year dedicated to all female athletes and coaches in Hong Kong. In the words of an Olympian judge, "In today's world, no organization or country can afford to let half of the population be left behind – either in sport or in society. Advancing women in and through sport is truly a team effort. By joining hands and working together, sport can inspire the necessary change and lead the way."
"Leading Woman in SPORTS" - will be awarded to a woman who has made remarkable contributions to the development, encouragement and reinforcement of women and girls' participation in sport on and off the field of play.
