The Cartier Women’s Initiative is an annual international programme created in 2006 to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs.
The Jury for the Cartier Women’s Initiative is composed of 35 high-profile individuals and is divided in 7 regional juries. They are chosen on the basis of their entrepreneurial experience, their business achievements and their commitment to supporting women entrepreneurs. They play a key role in reviewing the candidates’ applications and selecting the finalists and laureates during the Awards competition. The jury members then give feedback to the laureate and finalists and thereafter provide additional support and connections to the entrepreneurs.
Claudia Zeisberger has been chosen as jury member for 2020 for the South Asia region. With this position Claudia plans to further her agenda of women empowerment and entrepreneurship.
