Q: How are the Women Leaders in Consulting recognized?

A: Women Leaders in Consulting are recognized a few ways: One, with an editorial feature in the magazine. Two, winners are recognized at a celebratory gala awards dinner in New York.


Q: What does the editorial judging committee look for in a nomination?

A: Without getting into specifics, the committee is always impressed by measurable metrics and quantifiable results. Specifics are important. That means cost savings and revenue generation isn't nearly as memorable as generated $50 million in revenue for a client or saved the firm $10 million, for example.


Q: How strict are the word limits found in the nomination form?

A: Pretty strict, although slightly over is OK. However, the limits are there for a reason and going way over the limits won't help your nominee's chances. Be concise and to the point as much as possible. We typically get between 400 and 500 nominations.
