O Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, que premia iniciativas lideradas por mulheres no mundo todo, está com uma parceria com o programa TED, uma organização sem fins lucrativos dedicados a espalhar ideias que valem a pena. A cerimônia acontecerá no dia 26 de abril no hotel Capella, novamente na cidade de Singapura.
O prêmio visa contemplar projetos socialmente responsáveis dos cinco continentes e apresentar mulheres empreendedoras que comandam iniciativas com potencial de crescimento para os próximos anos. Os projetos devem ter fins lucrativos, serem criativos, estarem na fase inicial (de um a três anos de atividade) e serem comandados por mulheres. A competição é aberta para qualquer país e iniciativas de qualquer setor podem participar.
Durante a cerimônia no dia 26 de abril, haverá uma sessão especial com curadoria da TED. O evento contará com uma serie de talks entre mulheres empreendedoras e líderes sobre como fazer contribuições efetivas e soluções acessíveis para os maiores desafios, para futuras gerações.
”Na Cartier, valorizamos muito as parcerias criativas que melhoram a nossa curiosidade e abertura para o mundo”, disse Cyrille Vigneron, CEO da Cartier. “Dar para essas mulheres empresárias uma plataforma e uma oportunidade única para compartilhar com os outros aqui em Singapura. É, para nós, uma fantástica janela para o mundo como ele é hoje”, finaliza Cyrille.
A parceria de Cartier Women’s Initiative Awars e TED irá trazer vozes e ideias poderosas para o evento fazendo com que o público veja as empreendedoras como inspirações e representando o empoderamento feminino.
With the announcement of the Cartier Awards 2018 finalists, Cartier remains deeply committed to supporting women entrepreneurs and creative excellence around the world.
Since 2006, Cartier, in partnership with INSEAD Business School and McKinsey & Company, has supported women entrepreneurs leading creative, for-profit start-ups that are financially sustainable and socially responsible. The international competition continues to contribute to the global economy, by seeking out bold female entrepreneurs who are making concrete contributions to finding effective and affordable solutions for future generations, as well as to encourage more women to achieve their full potential.
Cartier is pleased to announce today the 2018 finalists of the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards. The 18 finalists were selected amongst 2800 applications from over 130 countries (among them Austria, Cameroon and Pakistan for the first time) which represents almost twice as many applications received compared to last year.
In this new edition, finalists distinguished themselves by the impact they are making in ensuring safe and dignified sanitation everywhere, in improving healthcare and social care systems and in optimizing the use of technology towards better education and professional opportunities for worldwide youth.
For the second consecutive year, the 18 finalists will be invited to the INSEAD Campus in Singapore, to participate in the Awards week program (bespoke business workshops and coaching sessions for the finalists as well as jury evaluation). The laureates will be announced at the international Cartier Awards ceremony, on April 26 2018, at the Capella, in Singapore. The event will host a specially curated TED session featuring a series of live conversations between women entrepreneurs and thought leaders about making concrete contributions towards effective and affordable solutions to today’s most pressing challenges, for future generations.
“In a decade, this initiative truly has made an impact: out of 198 finalists creating over 6000 jobs, 80% are still in activity, which is an amazing rate for start-ups. This is why we decided to scale it up and to give it even more scope and a higher prize as well as more recognition. With the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, our Maison aims to contribute to women’s empowerment efforts worldwide, and thus mirror Cartier’s values : curiosity, audacity, caring for others and willpower to lead the change. Sharing these women’s dreams and lives is part of who we are” shares Cyrille Vigneron, CEO of Cartier International.
