Inspiring Women

WorldCC Foundation's Inspiring Women 

The Inspiring Women program, a collaboration between World Commerce and Contracting, Icertis, and WorldCC Foundation is a program which recognizes and celebrates women who have made significant achievements in their fields. It is a group of leaders, influencers, innovators, and entrepreneurs, and through this program we aim to imbue a deep sense of pride, spirit, passion in, and inspiration from the incredible contributions that women make to commerce and society.

The women you see on this program have all been nominated and selected by a committee for their demonstration of one or more of the following criteria:

  • Leadership
  • Inspiring and influencing others
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Making a positive difference (either in your organization or generally)
  • Bravery and/or moral courage
  • Supporting diversity and inclusion
  • Leading in technology
  • Displaying resilience in the face of uncertainty
  • Raising the reputation of contracting in your organization, geography, or industry
  • Social value (ethics and sustainability initiatives)
