Nominate your peers—or yourself—for Ragan’s Top Women in Communications Award

Winners will be feted at a gala celebration in spring 2020.

Women in communications have made great strides in recent years, but challenges remain.

Fortunately, women have long known how to persevere and succeed in the face of obstacles.

Ragan Communications’ inaugural Top Women in Communications Awards will highlight the stories of female communicators—internal and external—who’ve changed the game permanently and forged a path for those who will follow their lead.

This is your chance to tell us—and the world—about everything the female communicators in your organization have accomplished.

You can nominate up to 10 women from your organization or another organization, as long as they work in communications. We’re looking for both internal and external communicators. You can even nominate yourself.

This is a global award. Nominations are accepted from all countries—but entries must be submitted in English.

Tell us in a brief entry form about your nominee’s accomplishments in the year spanning November 2018 through November 2019.

  • Leader: She leads with conviction and empathy, and her team looks up to her.
  • Visionary: She sees around the corners and tells captivating stories.
  • Game-Changer: She’s allergic to the status quo.
  • Dynamic Do-er: She rolls up her sleeves and gets it done. And then some.
  • Mentor: She takes future leaders under her wings and teaches them how to fly.
  • Trailblazer: She creates a new path that others want to follow.
  • Community Give: She is giving of her time to people and places outside her employer.

    Lisa Peers says:

    While I appreciate any opportunity to recognize women’s contributions to the field, the validity and importance of the awards are undercut by how the categories are named. I keep asking, what if this were open to all genders – how would “Life of the Party” resonate as a professional point of pride? I hope you’ll consider aligning these awards to support women’s strength and value in a very competitive, demanding field.
