Celebrating Women of Influence

On International Women’s Day in 2019, Municipal World launched a new award celebrating Women of Influence in Local Government. This year, we are inviting you to nominate women who you believe are deserving of this recognition.

The Women of Influence in Local Government Award celebrates women who have made significant contributions to the field, whether on the administrative or political side of life. Women who have demonstrated leadership, strength, and determination. Women who have worked collaboratively and lifted up others along the way in the pursuit of effecting positive change in communities.

Nomination Requirements

Your nomination should include a brief summary (up to 500 words), explaining why the individual you’ve nominated should be recognized as a Woman of Influence – highlighting:

  • The role they’ve had in local government (administrative or political)
  • How they’ve made a difference in their community
  • Ways they’ve mentored and supported others
  • Contributions they’ve made to the field of local government – locally, provincially, nationally, and/or internationally.
