Women of Europe Awards | 2019
This is a private event, upon invitation only.
The Women of Europe Awards are jointly organised by the European Movement International and the European Women’s Lobby, building upon the national awards of several National European Movement Councils.
This fourth annual edition of Women of Europe Awards, which will be held at BELvue Museum on Wednesday, 4 December, continues to honour women striving to advance the European project in their professional or private capacity. While the role of women in the European project remains at times unrecognised, the awards highlight the contribution of women in promoting and advancing European issues, and to increase the presence and involvement of women in debates about Europe and its future.
The following categories will be recognised :
Woman in Power | showing extraordinary political leadership in Europe
Woman in Action | undertaking extraordinary actions at grassroots level in Europe
Woman in Business | advancing European integration with entrepreneurial spirit
Woman in Youth Activism | for women aged 15 to 30 strengthening the voice of young women in Europe
The award ceremony will be moderated by journalist Meabh McMahon, Euronews (@Brusselsness) and attended by the winners, shortlisted and jury members as well our wider network consisting of civil society, business, trade unions, NGOs, political parties, local authorities and media. This years’ jury, chaired by Eva Maydell MEP, President of the European Movement International, includes representatives from politics, business, academia and civil society.
