Top 100 Women in Social Entreprise 2023 (Europe)
‘For 15 years, Euclid Network (EN) has fostered social entrepreneurship and social innovation in Europe through knowledge exchange, capacity building, networking and international advocacy. EN combines the expertise from 26 European countries to empower social enterprise* in achieving positive change.
In the spirit of empowering women leaders in Europe’s social enterprise sector and accelerating progress towards a more gender-equal world, EN has launched the Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise initiative two years ago. Through this initiative EN celebrates women in the social enterprise sector, spotlighting their impact journey and achievements, connecting them to learn from and inspire each other. By celebrating the Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise every year, EN also aims to showcase the barriers women in social enterprise are still encountering i.a. regarding access to finance and investment, by sharing their stories and experiences with the wider social enterprise community.
With this initiative, EN wants to spotlight women as role models in the social enterprise sector in all their diversity.'[i]
‘On the International Women’s Day, Euclid Network (EN) revealed the anticipated Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise 2023 List featuring women leaders in social entrepreneurship and innovation.
EN’s second annual list honours women trailblazers who are helping to shape the European social enterprise ecosystem and leading it into the mainstream. The list is based on more than 900 answers from an open nomination call and an assessment by our esteemed jury, as part of the Top 100 Women in Social Enterprise Initiative.
The featured women stood out as having implemented creative and sustainable solutions to create significant positive social and/or environmental impact. They demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and commitment by going beyond their role and inspiring others to channel their potential.
The recognition is not a ranking but rather a list of those who have shone for their innovative approaches and the scape of impact created.'[ii]
