The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards were created in 2006. Each year since, six female entrepreneurs, each representing a major world region, are selected among 18 finalists who are coached before the final presentations at the Women’s Forum in Deauville.
The six Laureates are awarded US$20,000, coaching for one year by professionals from Cartier, consultants from McKinsey and lecturers from the international business school INSEAD.
