Powerful Women Come Together for the Global Thinkers Forum Awards

by Edwina Langley

Guests including actress Kate Winslet, Nobel Prize winner and former President of Liberia, Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Annabel Karmel MBE came together for the Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) Honorary Awards for Excellence on Thursday night.

Nominated predominantly by the Global Thinkers Forum advisory board – although eminent individuals, companies or NGOs can also be put forward separately – the honorees of the night included Dame Helena Morrissey, Financier and founder of 30% Club, and Teresa Njoroge, founder of the charity Clean Start, which supports women and girls imprisoned in Kenya. 

Picking up her award, Njoroge said, "I dedicate this award to millions of vulnerable women and girls across the world, who endure miscarriages of justice. You can rise up from anything and create a new future for yourself. Let’s all do something to right the injustices in our world. Together, we can create second chances”.

The night also saw the Athena40 recognition go to Her Royal Highness Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, president of the Royal Scientific Society, for her services for women's leadership and empowerment.

The Global Thinkers Forum brings together exceptional female leaders from around the world to partake in discussions about global challenges and trends.

Founded in 2012 by entrepreneur Elizabeth Filippouli – born out of an idea conceived at Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2011 – the organisation's aim is to help societies and leaders 'navigate a very complex world'.
