AboutAmazing Womein in eCommerce

Amazing Women in eCommerce is a community dedicated to celebrating the women who are shaping our industry, while raising money for Girls Inc. to help build the next generation of women business leaders.

Yotpo initially launched the program in 2018 seeking nominations to recognize visionary women in the eCommerce space. The incredible response from the industry inspired us to expand our efforts, creating a variety of opportunities for the community to share experiences and build a formidable network of Amazing Women.

We host year-round events, we share profiles on Amazing women, we connect online with our Slack community, and each year, from thousands of nominations, we select a group of women to honor as Amazing Women in eCommerce.

We received over 3,000 nominations for our 2022 AWIE Honorees. Nominations are now closed, and will open up again in the fall of 2022.

Whether they’re your wonderful teammates, colleagues, managers, leaders, friends, or heroes, they deserve recognition and we want to tell their story! Plus, during the nomination periods, we’ve committed to donate $5 to Girls Inc. To date, we’ve raised over $109,500!
