Women of Excellence 2016

There are quite a few courageous women and men who are quietly serving their community the best they can and igniting colossal gains. The challenges are monumental but these individuals strive to excel against the odds. Their tenacity is the hallmark of their success and commitment. AWiB chose to bring out those women of excellence from their trenches in every field and present them to the public.

We asked the community at large for nominees and we found eighteen. Out of these, we short listed six. All six will be celebrated at this gala dinner and outside judges will select with utmost care and pick the one who takes the AWiB WOE titleholder. Appreciating these individuals we trust will be inspirational to others. AWiB strives to increase the heroines of our nation so when the young are asked who their role models are, they would look inside and pick their own. The major funds raised from this event goes to help the less privileged excel in their own aspirations. We aspire to inspire!
