It is our belief that all women who contribute to the family and community deserve recognition. We involve a collective community of persons in the awards and selection process. These persons are known as the Collaborative/Guild, which includes the supporter/buyer, producer/engineer, promoter, sponsors, management, Pastors/churches, etc. All invested persons are able to submit nominations. Once the nominations are received, each nominee will be screened by the Collaborative/Guild for the eligible category criteria and ImPowered Woman qualifications.


The Collaborative/Guild is a closed group of recognized women in our Global community in various fields such as philanthropy/advocacy/activism/ministry, etc. and respected amongst their peers. Their focus is to ensure that specific category qualifications and imagery of each nominee is positively portrayed. The purpose of the screenings is not to make judgments about the submissions, but rather to make sure that each entry is eligible and placed in its proper category.


Once selections have been finalized, the category finalists are formally announced to the public. The public receives an opportunity to vote for their respective nominee. Each nominees bio and body of work will be displayed for the public. The public is allowed to vote as many times as they prefer, but only once per day throughout the duration of the voting period. The voting period will be scheduled for a limited date-range. The Collaborative/Guild accountant verifies all voting and ballot submission. Results of each award recipient are not known until the The Global Collaborative of 100 ImPowered Women Awards Ball, at which time the winner will be announced on-stage and awarded.

Nomination Review Process (November 5 – November 7)

The COLLABORATIVE/Guild is a closed group of recognized women in our Global community in various fields such as philanthropy/advocacy/activism/ministry, etc and respected amongst their peers meet to ensure that all nominations and entries meet eligibility criteria, all nominations and entries are in their respective categories, and are appropriate for The Global Collaborative of 100 ImPowered Women Awards. The members of the Academy/Guild will determine which nominations qualify for notification. Each category will be narrowed down to an acceptable number of nominees based upon the total number of nominations submitted overall. Those nominees who are not notified will be categorized as ‘Local Spotlights’, recognized during the GC1IW Celebrations and will participate in a series of FREE Development Workshops over a 12 month period.


Finalist Notification Period (November 8 – November 9)

All nominees that successfully made it through the review process will be notified via email and text.
