The WIT Wonder Women Awards honors and celebrates the industry’s talented and accomplished women for their outstanding achievements in toys, licensing and entertainment.

 

Join us on Sunday, February 18, 2018, as we unite in A Celebration of Collaboration, and honor these amazing industry leaders at the 14th Annual Wonder Women Awards Gala in New York City.

 

Last year, more than 650 industry executives attended the Gala, where proceeds go toward programming, education, empowerment initiatives, and scholarships, all designed to provide career growth opportunities for female professionals.
