A nomination to the Women of Influence grants entrants the opportunity to be recognized inside SUCCESS magazine and throughout our various digital platforms. That means prime visibility to our 5.1 million collective subscribers and website visitors—and you won’t be there alone. You will be among some of the most influential leaders of today.

Yes, absolutely! We are proud to accept nominations from all corners of the globe. Our virtual awards program allows us to celebrate and recognize the remarkable achievements of women worldwide.

The deadline for submissions to the Women of Influence is November 15, 2023.

After nominations close on November 15, 2023, an esteemed panel of judges will carefully review nominees to determine the final list. The top 50 are chosen equitably, at the sole discretion of the committee, based on a range of criteria set forth by the SUCCESS team.

The Women of Influence will be unveiled on woi.success.com, SUCCESS.com and through our social media channels on December 12, 2023. Nominees will be notified via email as well.

The processing fee pays for SUCCESS’s internal costs in organizing and promoting the search as well as its honorees, including the time and resources spent sourcing the esteemed panel of judges, the costs to produce the recognition pieces in the magazine and online, and the time considerations for further content partnerships.

Our top 50 honorees will receive:

  • Digital badges commemorating the accomplishment
  • Dedicated coverage across SUCCESS’ multimedia channels, with a combined reach of 5.1 million
  • Women of Influence commemorative award
  • Consideration for future coverage with SUCCESS
  • Exclusive partnership opportunities and advertising discounts
  • A highlight in the Women of Influence coverage in the March/April 2024 issue of SUCCESS magazine

In addition to recognizing the Women of Influence, this effort is also intended to alert the SUCCESS editorial staff to the impressive work of the nominees. All entrants will be included in the Women of Influence coverage in the March/April 2024 issue of SUCCESS magazine and be considered for content engagements in 2023 and beyond, including social media collaborations, podcast and videocast appearances, and stories and bylines in the magazine and on SUCCESS.com.

Nominations require the submission of a high-resolution headshot and 250-word bio that will be published on the Women of Influence website, as well as contact information.

See specific requirements below:
