The Annual Trust Women Awards honour two leaders whose work advances innovative solutions to the challenges faced by women worldwide.
Administered by the Thomson Reuters Foundation and judged by the Trust Women Advisory Board, two awards are presented annually:
The Hero Award celebrates an innovator whose bold thinking and high-impact work enables women to know and advance their rights. Nominees are judged on their leadership and the impact, scalability, and groundbreaking nature of their work. In 2013, applications for the Hero Award will be open from 2-27 September.
The Honorary Journalist Award recognizes a journalist who has made a significant contribution to the coverage of women’s rights.
The winners are acknowledged with profiles on the Thomson Reuters Foundation and Trust Women websites, and receive a cash prize of $5,000 to help further their work.
Both awards are presented at the Trust Women conference, which this year takes place on 3-4 December in London.
