About AWE Awards
A.W.E award started in 2010. The aim is to recognise and honour African Women living, working, studying or in business in Europe. The need for the Award came from an assessment conducted through the African women in Europe website which has over 1000 registered members. There was the need to honour these women for being good role models in their communities.
Candidates from all over Europe (AWE members or non-member) apply for the Awards. An appointed judicial board select the most qualified nominee in each category. Thereafter, the awards are presented to the ward winners during the Award ceremony. The ceremonies are held in different cities in Europe and everyone is invited to join the Awards ceremony.
