Q: When is the Women Leaders in Consulting survey open?

A: We will be accepting nominations from early-May through to late-July. Winners will be highlighted following the black-tie gala dinner in November on consultingmag.com


Q: What is the Women Leaders in Consulting For?

A: It's Consulting Magazine's annual recognition of the Women Leaders in Consulting. Firms nominate their women leaders and each year Consulting chooses winners in the following six categories: Excellence in Leadership, Excellence in Client Service, Future Leader, Mentor of the Year, Diversity Champion and Lifetime Achievement.


Q: How are the Women Leaders in Consulting recognized?

A: Women Leaders in Consulting are recognized a few ways: One, with an editorial feature on the Consulting Mag website. Two, winners are recognized at a celebratory black-tie 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.


Q: Is it for U.S.-based consultants only?

A: No, the Women Leaders in Consulting is global award and open to anybody who identifies as a woman. However, award winners are expected to attend the dinner in New York on Nov. 3.


Q: Are there any financial obligations?

A: Submitting entries is free of charge. If you are listed for an award, you would be expected to attend the award ceremony at a cost.


Q: What would be the best way for me to receive alerts and stay on top of the other awards from Consulting magazine?

A: Register online at consultingmag.com for FREE online access to the site, the digital edition of the magazine and our weekly newsletter.


Q: Can we submit more than one person from the firm?

A: Yes, but please limit it to 6.

Q: Can we nominate the same person from multiple accounts?

A: No, only one submission will be read per nominee.
