Since 1991, the Her World Woman of the Year Award has recognised and celebrated outstanding women in Singapore, and it has become one of the most established and recognisable awards here with a distinguished list of winners. In 1999, the Her World Young Woman Achiever Award was created to honour remarkable women aged 39 and below – women whose influence impacts their immediate professional space and who inspire the community we live in.
