About the Women of Influence Awards

Women are creating, building and leading some of the most dynamic enterprises in Trinidad and Tobago. Along the way, often at great risk and against the odds, they have shattered glass ceilings and entrenched stereotypes and have redefined the meaning of leadership and success, and the respect and reward due to working women.

This Annual Awards Ceremony tells the story of inspiring women who are high achievers in business life in Trinidad and Tobago. These women may be in the current business life, in social enterprise or who may have made their contributions at any time in the history of Trinidad and Tobago. Their stories are an encouragement and motivation to younger, aspiring women. The Association of Female Executives of Trinidad and Tobago (AFETT) salutes these women of achievement, many of whom work quietly and without acclaim in the many different businesses and industries that contribute to the economic life of our country.

Our mission is to reflect and amplify the voices of outstanding working women; to share their stories of risk and success; to chronicle their growing political, economic and social influence and power; to celebrate their triumphs; and to identify and promote a new generation of leaders, along with role models and mentors for tomorrow’s leaders.
