Is there a Woman Worth Watching® in your organization?

Profiles in Diversity Journal invites you to participate in our 18th annual Women Worth Watching leadership issue recognizing dynamic professional women who are using their talents and influence to change our workplaces and our world.

Why does your organization need to nominate?

Throughout our history, Profiles in Diversity Journal has proudly recognized thousands of women from around the world who are truly making a difference in their organizations.

Nominated by their employers, these accomplished executives are from corporate organizations, world-class educational institutions, the armed forces, and nonprofit groups. This recognition not only publicly celebrates their commitment and achievements, but also enhances the visibility and reputations of the organizations that empower, support, and employ these incredible women too.

Numerous former Women Worth Watching recipients are now in the role of chief executive officer for their Fortune 500 companies (See some of their stories here). Countless others have gone on to lead new business units, drive new markets, launch new ventures, and help develop the next generation of women leaders. What might the Woman Worth Watching in your organization accomplish?
