WERT Global Prize

The WERT Global Prize honors excellence in business journalism by a woman for work that fosters a great understanding of global business. It was established in 2018 with a bequest from The Women’s Economic Round Table (WERT) and has received support from the Muriel F. Siebert Foundation and the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.

The recipient of the prize receives $2,000. The 2024 prize will be announced in October.

Deadline: Monday, July 15, 2024, 11:59 p.m.
