For the 2022 WEPs Awards, the nominees will be recognized across 6 categories:

The WEPs Awards are organized by WeEmpowerAsia, a UN Women programmed funded by the European Union aiming to increase the number of women who participate and lead in businesses in the Asia-Pacific. Following the successful partnership in 2021 with Investing in Women (IW), the 2022 Awards has the continued support of the Australian Government.
