We’re on a mission to get more women in business on the stage and under the spotlight! 


A report by the National Women’s Business Council found that women-owned firms are underrepresented in national and international awards, with women accounting for only 12.9% of all business award winners. 

Again – why, and are we holding ourselves back? A study published in the journal Sex Roles found that women were more likely than men to experience impostor syndrome, which can lead to feelings of shyness or self-doubt in the workplace. The study found that women were more likely than men to believe that their success was due to external factors such as luck, rather than their own abilities. 

Women in the workplace

Research has also shown that women are less likely than men to self-promote or advocate for their own accomplishments in the workplace (Journal Basic and Applied Social Psychology). 

Internal locus of control – let’s take back control and get ourselves on the stage. And remember 99% of awards are self-nominated, so let’s nominate ourselves and our fellow women and knock the boys off, together. Awards are a powerful tool to grow your awareness and credibility and ultimately make lead conversion easier because the potential clients already trust you. Our clients also find they can charge a premium for their services with this additional credibility, and their team and new recruits are excited to be part of an award-winning company.
