Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Award Nomination Deadline
BOLD by Veuve Clicquot presents an opportunity to not only recognize women who are making significant contributions in business but also to shed light on the barriers that hinder their success. Formerly known as the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award (BWA), the program was created as a tribute to the brand’s founder Madame Clicquot and her entrepreneurial business spirt.
“Our mission is to empower female entrepreneurs and to identify the role models of today and tomorrow,” said Alexis de Calonne, managing director of Moët Hennessy Canada. “BOLD by Veuve Clicquot recognizes trailblazing women who embody our founder’s entrepreneurial spirit, courage and business savoir-faire.”
For over 50 years, BWA celebrated and awarded women in business who have built, taken on or developed a business. To date, 350 women in 27 countries have been honoured.
Past recipients of BWA include an illustrious list of trailblazing business leaders including hotelier Christiane Germain, beauty visionary Lise Watier, restaurateur Cora Tsouflidou, and Claudia Sjoberg, founder and president of Pedalheads Group.
Redesigned for more inclusion and international visibility, the Bold Woman Award and Bold Future Award is open to females, aged 25 years and above, who meet defined criteria and whose daring, enterprising and indefatigable approach to business has directly impacted its success. Up to five finalists in each category will be selected by an esteemed jury and will be invited to attend The BOLD Woman Award ceremony where one laureate in each of the categories will be designated by a grand jury.
Each laureate will receive a Veuve Clicquot-inspired award and will travel to Reims, France for a three-day immersion in the history, tradition, and luxury of Maison Veuve Clicquot.
BOLD by Veuve Clicquot registration for Canada is open until December 31, 2020.
