Each year, IWIRC honors a woman for her recent contributions (12-24 months) to the insolvency and restructuring industry with the Woman of the Year in Restructuring (WOYR) award. She may be an attorney, judge, banker, turnaround manager, academic or other restructuring industry professional. She is actively engaged or recently retired from the restructuring industry - and from anywhere in the world. IWIRC membership is not a requirement to make a nomination, nor to be honored.
Importantly, achievements do not have to be in nationally renowned cases or result in landmark decisions, only exceptional. IWIRC welcomes all entries and is not seeking the most senior woman or the most important case.
