About the Female CEO of the Year Awards
At the centre of every successful business is a CEO committed to pushing it forward and making it better, a task that cannot be taken on lightly in today’s competitive economic climate. This is especially true for companies with a woman at the helm. Did you know that only 8.2% of fortune 500 companies have a female CEO? Women are less likely to be promoted to the top position of a company, so when they are they work harder than their male counterparts. The good news is that whilst that 8.2% figure may be low, it has more than doubled since 2012 and studies suggest more women are getting involved in the business world by starting their own enterprises.
CEO Monthly thought it was time to celebrate the amazing and inspirational women standing tall and leading their businesses forward. For this reason, we have launched, new for this year, the Female CEO of the Year Awards 2022. With these awards, it is the hope of CEO Monthly that we can shine a light on a sometimes marginalised and overlooked group of women who work tirelessly to drive their business forward.
The Female CEO of the Year Awards 2022 are open to female CEOs from all businesses operating anywhere in the world, including Construction and Engineering, Consumer Goods, Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals, and many more.
CEO Monthly’s merit-based research process ensures that all nominees are assessed based on their accomplishments, reputation, and ability to illustrate commitment to their missions and values in business. To determine our winners, the CEO Monthly research team will gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources to be assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.
Successful participants will achieve welcome recognition for their efforts and will be able to utilise the CEO Monthly brand to spread the news of their success to our global circulation of 60,000+ leading CEOs!
So, with this in mind, if you are or know of a Female CEO that is worthy of acknowledgement within the Female CEO of the Year Awards 2022, then please complete the voting form by clicking ‘nominate’ at the top of the page.

Researching our nominees
The CEO Monthly team work ardently to identify great business leaders, driving many of the nominations themselves. We also encourage external nominations via the subscribers of the magazine, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either CEOs of third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or the CEO of the business which they are a part of.
Shortlisting our nominees
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those formally accepting are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria such as: business performance whilst the CEO has been in the position, any dramatic or positive change within the business since the CEO took the helm, feedback from any stakeholders during this time and any new innovations within the timeframe.
Our lucky winners
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
Share the exciting news
We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to winners in the Global CEO Excellence Awards, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure for them personally and for their business. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement.
