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 recipients of these three awards are selected from nominations put forward by the Womenomics committee.
Womenomics Award Recipients 2021
Impact Award 2021
Television Presenter, Actor and Writer
“It is with heartfelt gratitude that I will be receiving The Womenomics Impact Award.
I am really pleased that the business community has also heard my message and looked inwards. After all, it is precisely the employers who must ensure equal pay and respect across genders in the workplace, so that in the future, equality is something we have, and not something we fight for”
Entrepreneurship Award 2021
Camilla Falkenberg, Anna-Sophie Hartvigsen and Emma Due Bitz
Co-Founders, Female Invest
“Financial equality is a prerequisite for equality in all aspects of life. We are very honored by the recognition this Womenomics Entrepreneurship Award gives, and it fuels our motivation to make a difference.”
SCIENCE Award 2021
Polar Explorer and Climate Scientist
“In climate change the world is facing a challenge that cannot be solved by one region or one part of society alone – the solutions we need require a global effort that involves everyone.
Therefore I am proud and delighted to receive this Womenomics Award which recognises my efforts to create greater diversity and inclusion across exploration, breaking down stereotypes and empowering women to reach beyond the expectation of others – and I hope it provides a memorable example to women of all ages of the varied places a STEM career can take you!”
