UN Women Call for Nominations: WEPs Awards

About the WEPs Awards

The UN Women Asia-Pacific WEPs Awards is the first regional awards initiative that recognizes companies who are taking action for gender equality in the region aligned to the Women’s Empowerment Principles, with the ultimate objective to make good practices visible and encourage more business to take action by joining the WEPs.

The 2024 WEPs Awards is part of the new UN Women program Gender Action Lab (GAL): Innovation and Impact for Gender Equality in Asia-Pacific, powered by the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), supported by the Government of Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Under GAL, the WEPs Awards will become part of a two-year cycle with the WEPs Awards happening one year followed by a WEPs Forum the next year. The first cycle will begin with the 2024 WEPs Awards and culminate with the 2025 WEPs Forum

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 October in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam (countries in which UN Women has active WEPs programming), followed by a wider Asia-Pacific regional awards ceremony. Winners from the national awards ceremonies will be combined with a shortlist of applications from all other Asia-Pacific countries to form the nominee pool for the Regional Awards in November.
