Selection Process

All applications will be submitted online and assessed through a standardized process that includes verification of supporting documents, due diligence, and judging by an external panel of neutral experts. The judging panel will be composed of external professionals with knowledge of the WEPs and private sector practices that promote gender equality and women’s empowerment. They will act on a voluntary basis and receive detailed guidance for scoring in an effort to maximize consistency and objectivity. 

 

The awards will follow a multi-stage approach with national awards ceremonies in the 7 WeEmpowerAsia countries followed by a wider Asia-Pacific regional awards ceremony. Winners from the national awards ceremonies will be combined with a shortlist of applicants from non-WEA countries to form the nominee pool for the regional awards on December 10th.
