Each year, the Womenomics Business Conference, founded by Above & Beyond, awards three extraordinary women, who are above & beyond in their respective fields, for their unique achievements and contribution to reach gender parity.
The awards given each year are, The Womenomics Global Impact Award, The Womenomics Influencer Award and The Womenomics Influencer Award. The recipients of these three awards are selected from nominations put forward by the Womenomics committee. In early 2018, the Womenomics committee will meet once more to discuss the candidates for this year’s awards.
At the conference hosted at Børsen, Copenhagen, in 2017, HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark accepted The Womenomics Global Impact Award 2017 for her strong commitment to furthering the opportunities for women and girls both in Denmark and abroad. Former Minister and MP, Ida Auken, received The Womenomics Influencer Award 2017 for focusing on digital disruption, as it impacts the future of work, economy and society, as the Founder of the SIRI Commission. Pia Vemmelund, Managing Director at momondo, was awarded The Womenomics Leadership Award 2017 for leading the travel portal through double-digit growth and for inspiring a new generation of female leaders.
