The 7th Annual Women on the Rise Awards Gala is an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge women here in Central Florida that are making exceptional contributions to their community and profession. We welcome you to partner with us in our goal to celebrate our female community leaders. The Gala is not only an opportunity to celebrate the women within our community, but it is also an opportunity to inspire women of the community to take on new challenges - both professionally and personally. As a result, our communities thrive allowing for continued growth and development. 

Our Inaugural Gala in May of 2017 was a sold out event and honored over fifty women. We encouraged the community to visit our website and nominate a local female resident for one of the 11 awards we were presenting and we received 150+ nominations. The gala has continued to grow both in popularity and as a respected event for acknowledging local leaders. In this packet, there are many opportunities where you can partner with us on this event to show your commitment and support to women's empowerment and to the mission of Women on the Rise International, Inc. and the community.


Women on the Rise Awards are open to all women within the Orlando Metro area. All nominations must be sent via the website by filling out the form provided. We will not accept any nominations from any other platform.

The Women on the Rise Awards Gala started in 2017 as a desire to celebrate the unsung heroines in the community who were making positive impact and driving change. Our Founder created the First Gala using her own personal savings with no sponsorship support and celebrated over 50 women in one night. It was a magical evening to see so many women celebrated and acknowledged for their efforts.
