Your Guide to the 2024 SUCCESS® Women of Influence Awards

The Women of Influence awards celebrate the power of women who lead and inspire—across industries, communities, and the lives of others. Through these awards, we honor remarkable female leaders and their achievements that empower the next generation to follow their brilliant lead.

Nominees can be any woman who is a respected role model for innovation or transformation in their community. They can be leaders across sectors, industries, and boundaries.

Some examples of Women of Influence include:

  • Authors
  • Mentors
  • Psychologists or therapists
  • Physical trainers
  • Teachers
  • Youth leaders
  • Business, career or life coaches
  • Motivational speakers or thought leaders
  • Expert consultants
  • Nonprofit or business leaders
  • Pastors
  • Philanthropists
  • Community organizers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Business founders
  • And more!

Women who move mountains often do it quietly. Give yourself or a remarkable woman the spotlight they've earned—and expand their influence. Nominees gain exposure and recognition in front of SUCCESS® subscribers and website visitors. They’re positioned as a top voice alongside the most influential leaders of today.

Yes. The Women of Influence awards is a virtual event that recognizes women who achieve excellence across the globe.

2024 Women of Influence submissions are due Oct. 30, 2024, by 11:59pm ET.

Nominees are recognized on the Women of Influence website where they gain accolades and exposure to thousands of visitors, aspiring leaders, and potential partners. Keep the following requirements in mind for their big moment.


  1. One headshot. Make sure your nominee’s high-resolution (at least 1 MB) photo is professional and doesn’t feature other people or branding.
  2. A 150- to 200-word bio. Be sure to include your nominee’s professional titles, designations, and personal and professional achievements.
  3. Why your nominee deserves recognition. Tell us about the great work your nominee is doing, whether it’s being a mentor and lifting up others at work, creating and leading an innovative initiative, or starting a community garden to help reduce food scarcity.
  4. Contact information. Share how we can connect with the nominee to share updates on their nomination.
Make sure you include all three of these items in your nomination for us to feature your nominee on the Women of Influence website.

The processing fee helps cover SUCCESS’® internal costs to organize and promote the awards and its nominees.
