Annual ceremony set aside to honour women who are making an impact whether big or small has recorded huge success in past editions.
According to a statement issued by the organisers of the award, “2016 so far has been a phenomenal year for women all around the world. We have seen the 1st ever Female US Presidential Candidate, the 1st Female UK Prime Minister in power since the late 80s, the 1st Nigerian Female President of a major US television network, the 1st Female Nigerian Chancellor and let’s not forget the female athletics in Rio, the Nigerian Female rower, who was exceptional at the Olympics.
“It’s that time again when we as a community welcome & recognise a new host of brilliantly skilled women who are making an impact in their respective industries.
It’s time to applaud their tenacity, guts and passion. It’s time to lift them up so that one day you too will be lifted up by the people whose lives you have impacted on.
This year’s award opens for nominations in both the ELOY Awards category and Ladies Who Inspire category.
