In 2017 UN Women and the Supreme Council for Women in Bahrain announced the Princess Sabeeka Bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa Global Award for Women’s Empowerment. The award, to be presented every three years, recognizes individuals, organisations, companies and member States who are doing exceptional work for women’s empowerment in their communities, across four categories. Each award is valued at $100,000.

The award will highlight innovative initiatives that bring about sustainable transformation for women´s empowerment in their communities.

In March 2018, the international jury members who will assess the shortlisted candidates in each of the four categories were published. Read more about the jury members here.

UN Women encourages anyone working to make lasting change in their community, enterprise, country or region to apply. In particular, youth are encouraged to apply to showcase their new and innovative approaches to address inequalities. Shortlisted candidates and initiatives will be featured on the website, with an aim to share best practices, success stories and achievements with the global community.
