Celebrating women in business

Know someone who deserves recognition?

Nominations for the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award 2014 are open.

Now in its 42nd year, the prestigious award has been won in previous years by inspirational women including Zaha Hadid and Anya Hindmarch. Back for 2014 is the Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award, which launched this year and was won by tech businesswomen Kathryn Parsons.

Comments Christina Jesaitis, senior brand manager at Veuve Clicquot: 'The success of our first New Generation Award highlighted the need to celebrate not only those women that have achieved great things in their careers and a proven track record in business, but also those that have taken a fearless approach in starting up their own business.'

Both the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award and the New Generation Award champion female entrepreneurs and business leaders – something which echoes the efforts of ELLE's Make Them Pay Campaign, which confronts the issue of equality in the workplace and encourages women to ask their male counterparts what their salary is.
