Nominate the "unsung" heroes that make a difference for women around you!!


A unique opportunity for you to endorse women that “made a difference - How? Submit your nominations for the TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards!

As a PWI Brussels member you are offered the tremendous opportunity to help raise the profile of women and men who have accomplished extraordinary things for women’s economic power, including well-known women and men as well as “unsung heroines”, who often work with little or no recognition. There are women throughout the world whose actions, efforts and inspiration truly do make a "World of Difference" in supporting the advancement of women.


The opportunity to submit nominations for the “TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards” is offered to PWI members, as PWI Brussels is a voting member within the TIAW (The International Alliance for Women). TIAW serves as the global umbrella organisation that unites, supports and promotes professional women and their networks to work together, share resources and leverage ideas.

The “TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards” – This year is the third edition of the TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards assigned already to hundreds of women across the globe, mostly in the US, Canada and South America (please see names: here).
Amongst the European winners we would like to highlight
Kristin Engvig (Switzerland, Entrepreneurial/Education) and Roz Morris (UK Not for Profit/NGO). Roz Morris was the speaker at the PWI Brussels Networking Lunch on the 18 March this year.

 TIAW World of Difference 100 Awards is a very important way to acknowledge every year up to 100 outstanding achievers, whose efforts have advanced the economic empowerment of women locally, regionally or worldwide.

Economic empowerment” as defined by TIAW means contributing to the ability of women to earn a living or make an economic impact. Whether it is a small village project in a developing country that has ripple effects throughout the community, or an event or initiative on a global scale, the TIAW World of Difference Award recognises the power within every individual to change the world we live in for the improvement of women.
