Do you or someone you know qualify as a Mighty Woman?  We want to know about them for our new Mighty Women List. Anyone working in Canadian marketing and communications (media, advertising, creative, production, PR, etc.) is eligible. The Mighty Women List is for them.  

We were specific in calling this the Mighty Women List rather than the Mighty Women Awards. The end goal is to highlight stories from women in our industry about the important, meaningful and impactful work that they are doing, both at and away from the office.

That could mean amazing work accomplishments, but it could also mean someone who does their job while also accomplishing amazing things at home or in the community; perhaps they fulfill an impactful mentorship role, or have done something that has made our industry and the people within it better.

Mighty Women could be well into their career, or at the very beginning. We are purposely casting a wide net here, and the criteria are deliberately open-ended: The idea is to celebrate the stories of amazing women in this industry.

Here’s how to enter (there is no cost):

  • First, give us the key details: The name and job title of the entrant, and how many years they have been in the industry.

Then, tell us her story (1,000 words maximum with suggested word counts provided):

  • The entrant’s biggest obstacle and how she overcame it (200 words)
  • The entrant’s greatest achievement (200 words)
  • Identify the entrant’s bravest/riskiest move (200 words)
  • Any other relevant info you think our jury should consider (400 words)

Once you’ve completed your document (Word Document preferred), please email it to, where it will be collected and moved into the jury phase.

***Please use “Mighty Women Submission” as the subject line in the email.***


The honourees will be selected by a jury led by The Message, and Giants & Gentlemen’s Natalie Armata and Alanna Nathanson.

Meet our judges here.

The Message will announce the 10 women who comprise the 2022 Mighty Women List in March 2022.
