The following criteria will be considered:

  • The nominee’s achievements in their career, their firm or the private funds industry to date, and particularly over the last 12 months;
  • Evidence of innovation or game-changing actions;
  • Evidence of leadership, impact or influence on others within the industry and beyond.

Achievements considered noteworthy might include, for example: a promotion; starting a mentoring program; playing an instrumental role in an innovative or significant deal; implementing an ESG policy; leading their fund’s investment activity in a new sector or region; taking identifiable steps to facilitate greater DE&I in their firm/portfolio companies/the wider industry; founding a new firm; helping their organization successfully navigate market disruption.

To be eligible, nominees must work in the private funds industry, namely private equity, private debt, infrastructure, venture capital or real estate. We welcome nominations for women working in a variety of roles at investment firms (such as on the investment team, IR, operations, marketing and portfolio support), LPs, as well as advisory firms (eg, law firms, placement agents, capital advisory firms). There are no age or geographical restrictions.
