«Woman who matters» is the first Russian Award,
aimed at identification and promotion of companies’ best projects,

practices and programs concerning women’s accomplishments, ambitions and rights.
The Award is about women, made by women for women.

There are lots of women-oriented projects and programs all over the world today. For example, in Volvo a team of 100 girls has designed their dream car, Nike has created the world's first sports hijab and 17 famous Barbie dolls have turned into Great Women (e.g. an artist Frida Kahlo and a physicist and mathematician Catherine Johnson)!

Unfortunately, the topic of supporting women is not as developed in Russia as it is in the West, especially in the areas where the probability of holding management positions is as limited as the opportunities for career growth, not to mention special women-oriented projects.

Our Award not only reveals the most relevant and the brightest programs, created with the participation of women and for women, but also attracts attention to their contribution to various fields of activity, encourages sharing international experience in those fields and also supports women's professional promotion. We believe that we are creating a comfortable work environment for the women and the men.

Last year the major companies, such as Danone, McDonalds, Google, MasterCard, supported us. Every year we inform the society about the best projects for women in Russia and in the world and help to implement them. We also help to popularize the ideas of gender diversity. We follow the main trends in women's initiatives and encourage everyone to support various women-oriented projects and to join our project.

For this purpose, the «Woman who matters» Forum was created in 2017, bringing together outstanding individuals and companies from different countries, which are united by the issues of Gender Inequality and Gender Diversity. In 2018 international American and European organizations joined the project as trustees and experts.
