"The Women Forward award is more than simply a competition. It shines a light on those individuals who are mentoring women and propelling society forward. It serves as inspiration to the female entrepreneurs Bpeace advises in economically challenged communities—like El Salvador and Guatemala."
The winners will be announced in April and an awards celebration will be held in New York City on June 4 at the Yale Club. Purchase tickets here.
