Impact Awards

The 2025 Edition

We are pleased to be hosting another Impact Awards edition in 2025. Cartier has proudly been selected by the committee of the Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition, to present the “Women’s Pavilion” at Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan. This is in continuation of the Women’s Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, where we hosted the Impact Awards the very first time.

Since the Impact Awards are only open to Cartier Women's Initiative Fellows, there will be no Call for Applications in 2024.

What are the Impact Awards?

The Impact Awards are dedicated to former Cartier Women's Initiative Fellows who have achieved extraordinary impact over the years.

Nine impact awardees will be selected across three categories, covering all 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Preserving the Planet, Improving Lives and Creating Opportunities.

These awardees, representing the top three businesses from each of the above categories, will receive $100,000 grant each in addition to human capital support and media visibility.

The three categories
