The Story of the International Femtor Awards

What is a Femtor?

The word Femtor is a registered trademark of eWomenNetwork. The term Femtor means "a wise and trusted woman providing knowledge, inspiration and practical information to other women."  Femtor acknowledges the mentoring work done from a female experience and knowledge base. These experienced women seek out ways to teach, share their wisdom and help other women find their wings.

What does it mean to be an International Femtor® Award winner?

This prestigious international honor is awarded to women who have proven themselves to be exemplary role models in the world of business. These awards allow us to say, in effect, “We See You” and acknowledge their outstanding achievements, skills, positive "can do" attitude and commitment to giving back to their communities. These women inspire others, are respected by their peers and volunteer their time and energy to serve others less fortunate.

Please note that by completing an online application, you are agreeing that should you or your nominee be selected as a finalist, you/they will be able to participate in all of the activities associated with the 2011 eWomenNetwork International Conference & Business Expo, July 14-17, 2011 in Dallas, TX.

All nominees and applicants will be notified of the outcome via email.  All of the Femtor Awards are decided by the eWomenNetwork Foundation Advisory Council and are announced during the International Femtor Awards Gala on the opening night of the annual eWomenNetwork International Conference and Business Expo in Dallas, Texas.

Selected finalists will receive a phone call and confirmation letter from the Corporate Office of eWomenNetwork acknowledging finalist status for an International Femtor Award and in which category.  Only during the live ceremony will finalists learn if they have won the International Femtor™ Award for the category to which they were nominated.

There are five award categories:

Business Matchmaker of the Year:
The award recognizes one unique eWomenNetwork member who has consistently gone out of her way to help others succeed. She is the consummate connector, who unselfishly looks out for the business needs of others.
Emerging Leader of the Year:
This award recognizes our leaders of tomorrow and the promise of a vibrant and heart-centered future. Applicants in this category are the best and the brightest in the 20-29 age group. Emerging Leaders must have demonstrated extraordinary and significant accomplishments in the areas of education, business and service to their communities.
Humanitarian of the Year:
The Humanitarian of the Year Award recognizes the powerful change that one individual can make in the lives of others. By selflessly giving, this individual is truly making a positive difference in the world, one person at a time.
Lifetime Achievement Award
We’ve begun a bit of a tradition with our Femtor Awards, and that is to look outside our own community to shine a spotlight on an outstanding businesswoman who is an exemplar of the kind of success that only decades of persistence and determination can yield.  Our Lifetime Achievement Award gives us the opportunity to say “We See You” to a wildly successful business woman who is among those who have accumulated both life experience and a track record of progressive accomplishments we can all admire.
Made it to a Million Award
Current research shows that only 2% of women owned businesses generate revenues of $1 million annually.   This award recognizes an outstanding eWomenNetwork member who has demonstrated exemplary leadership and business skills in the course of starting and growing her company.  She must be the owner/CEO of a 51% woman-owned business that has a minimum of 4 full time employees with an annual company revenue of at least $1 million for the preceding fiscal year.
