        Notification of Award Finalists: May 2019

        The International Femtor Awards are one of North America's most prestigious award honors. Each year nominated leaders are selected to be recognized for their outstanding achievements and the role they play in elevating the stature and well being of women.

        Some of our past winners include: Debbie Meyer, inventor of Debbie Meyer GREEN BAGS and HSN TV Star; Sheila Johnson, Co-Founder of BET, owner of Salamander Hospitality, movie producer and impassioned philanthropist; and Marilyn Tam, former CEO of Aveda, former President of Reebok Retail and Best Selling Author.


        The term Femtor means "a wise and trusted woman providing knowledge, inspiration and practical information to other women." Femtor acknowledges the mentoring work done from a female experience and knowledge base. These experienced women seek out ways to teach, share their wisdom and help other women find their wings.

        Business Matchmaker of the Year

        The award recognizes one unique eWomenNetwork member who has consistently gone out of her way to help others succeed. She is the consummate connector, who unselfishly looks out for the business needs of others.


        Made it to a Million Award

        Current research shows that only 2% of women owned businesses generate revenues of $1 million annually. This award recognizes an outstanding eWomenNetwork member who has demonstrated exemplary leadership and business skills in the course of starting and growing her company. She must be the owner/CEO of a 51% woman-owned business that has a minimum of 4 full time employees with an annual company revenue of at least $1 million for the preceding fiscal year. 


        Emerging Leader of the Year

        This award recognizes our leaders of tomorrow and the promise of a vibrant and heart-centered future. Applicants in this category are the best and the brightest in the 22-29 age group. Emerging Leaders must have demonstrated extraordinary and significant accomplishments in the areas of education, business and service to their communities.
