Egypt’s Union of Media Women has been nominated for the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Award 2016, which aims to “recognize those responsible leaders who develop and operate exemplary initiatives for the common good in their professional or private lives.”

According to the award’s website, the BMW Foundation’s award seeks to provide “tailored support” to the selected initiatives in order to help sustain them and allow the organizations to be impactful.

The winner of the award, which will be announced in May of this year, will receive prize money of as much as EUR 30,000, in addition to long-term support from the BMW Foundation. All finalists, meanwhile, will attend a workshop

The Union’s nomination comes one short year after its establishment in February 2015 as the first organization to represent the women working in Egypt’s media.

With more than 1,000 members on board, it provides women in Egypt’s media field with legal, moral and professional support for a variety of issues including gender discrimination and harassment.
