NOMINATION GUIDELINES

 

Nominations for the Women in Asset Management New York are open!

 

Who can nominate for these Awards? 

You can nominate yourself or your colleagues/peers. Please note that these awards are open to public and private funds (they don’t need to be in a mutual fund). Do include performance information that the judges can verify when needed. 

 

How do I nominate? 

You can nominate in as many categories as you deem appropriate.
Please use the criteria (listed below) of the category you wish to enter to shape your written submission, as the judges will refer to each criteria to guide their decisions. You will be asked to answer three questions which will require a range of 200-1000 words. The three questions you will be asked are:  
  • Please outline your career to date and what inspired you to join the industry? (200-1000 words max)
  • Please outline what professional and personal challenges you have faced to date and how you have coped/dealt with them. (200-1000 words max)
  • What are you now doing to promote opportunities for women or other specific groups within the industry and broaden knowledge outside the industry through personal initiatives. Please provide evidence/testimonials of the effectiveness of you work (200-1000 words max) 
The more factual information and stats you can provide for any of these questions, the better your chances on being a finalist on the shortlist.

 

Is there any cost involved? 

There is no cost to enter for the awards. If you make it on the shortlist as a finalist, you will be invited to attend the gala dinner and will need to purchase a ticket to attend. This is not mandatory though and attendance does NOT affect your chances of winning an award. 

 

Who judges the submissions? 

An independent panel of judges will consider each nomination and vote on the winners for each category 2-4 weeks before the awards gala dinner. 

 

Who shall I contact if I have any more questions?
