The prestigious Women of Power & Influence Awards celebrates the achievements of extraordinary women in government, finance, entrepreneurship, technology, law and business. Every year since 1988, our Women of Power & Influence Awards gala has honored women who have made great strides in redefining leadership and are changing the way our country thinks about women in the workplace.
Heralding the women leaders among us
Many of our awardees have boldly forged their way to the top of their industries breaking barriers along the way and have made their mark as pioneers and role models.
“Ever since Betty Friedan inscribed the letters N O W on a napkin, NOW has advanced women’s rights. It has made possible the successes of all of tonight’s awardees. Personally, I owe a special debt of gratitude. Without NOW’s support, and that of other women’s groups, I doubt that I would have been Chair of the Federal Reserve.”
– Dr. Janet L. Yellen
