About The Feisty Awards

The 2024 Feisty Awards is an international leadership award that honors women who take action to create solutions for problems in our society. The honorees exemplify brilliance in women’s leadership, serving as the best role models our society can produce. We are proud to honor these feisty social disruptors who have appointed themselves to initiate the change our world needs. 

Nominees are selected by a private panel of news curators as well as public nominations. All nominees are carefully considered for their dedication to take action to create a solution to a social issue, their willingness to bravely speak out against injustice and their ability to lead a path to advancement for our society.

Throughout the year each honoree will be featured in multi-media presentations and will have open access to The Feisty News platform to amplify their initiatives, inspiring change on a global scale.
