Woman of Stature Global Awards
Dubai 2022

Woman of Stature Foundation (NPC) is an African organization that is committed to the empowerment of women and inclusivity is one of Woman of Stature’s most valued principles. One of the initiatives is the Woman of Stature Awards which launched in 2013 in South Africa, the year the organization was formed.

The Woman of Stature awards was initially launched because we identified the communities in which women struggle to reach their full potential. Through the Woman of Stature Foundation we have now launched it Globally, where we aim to unite women and help them to rise up through education and empowerment so that they become the greatest version of themselves and globally competitive participators in a worldwide economy.

We decided that the best way to address the social and gender inequalities and disparities is to build the confidence and self-esteem of women in business and community, by recognising their efforts, achievements and commitment to building a better, stronger nation. Since then we have made great strides in helping communities connect, women in business to generate viable business and individuals that are excelling to gain some traction in pubic domains.

The purpose of the GLOBAL award is to recognize women internationally who embody the qualities and values of a Woman of Stature and the Hadarat Global Brand.

A woman who embodies Integrity, Excellence, Emotional and Professional Maturity, Selflessness & Empathy and who will thus be able to be a true Brand Ambassador of the Woman of Stature Foundation brand. This is embodied by the Hadarat Global team to support women not only in Middle East but Internationally.
The Criteria are:
A woman who consistently lives the values of a woman of stature, evident in her character and how others experience her
A woman who is making a transformative, valued contribution to society and the economy of their country.
A woman who is making an impact in her industry, distinguished in her leadership style and excelling in her area of expertise
A woman who is empowering and inspiring others beyond her area of expertise
Woman of Stature Global Awards is reserved for influential women leaders, across diverse spectrums of emerging economies, who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment and significant contributions to community development, economic and environmental sustainability, as well as ceaseless efforts in promoting gender diversity and equity, making inroads for other women and girls in the society. These will include the powerful and influential network of entrepreneurial, social, and businesswomen leaders from across the globe, who have successfully emerged as strong powerful business leaders in our society today.

These women are designed to preserve the place of women in history by archiving the told and untold stories of their giant strides, celebrate the untiring and impactful contributions of women to the development of the nations’ heritage and connect women from various climes and generations; whilst inspiring the younger generations to dare to dream and unleash their potentials.
