Doyenne Awards 2017
in association with EVOKE.ie
Wednesday 8th March
08:30 to 12:00
Our 2015 Industry Census highlights that only 18% of CEOs/Managing Partners of agencies are women, despite the fact that overall our industry is a perfect split of 50% men 50% women.
Yet many of us know women with fantastic leadership capability that have real potential and who might just need a little nudge and encouragement to help champion and positively redress the gender gap.
To coincide and celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March 2017, the fourth annual IAPI Doyenne Awards, in association with EVOKE.ie, are designed to recognise the women who have real potential to lead our industry in the future.There are two awards, open to women working in advertising, PR or media sales, who demonstrate leadership capability.
The ‘Doyenne Award’ is for women who have demonstrated their leadership capability, on agency clients, internally at their agencies, their industry involvement and their ability to champion collaboration, teamwork and industry best practice. They are passionate about the discipline of advertising and marketing communications in its fullest definition.
The ‘Rising Star Award’ for women on the way up, aged 30 or under, who power agency teams, demonstrate leadership and make things happen, go the extra mile to get the best and most effective work possible.
In both categories we are looking for women who love what they do.
To propose yourself, or someone you work with, just outline in 500 words or less why you believe you or your nominee deserves a Doyenne Award. We want to hear of her role in the workplace and the particular examples of leadership and excellence that inspired your nomination.
