Women of the Year 2018

Women of the Year 2018

On December 14th IMAGE.ie published a Women of the Year 2018 list. This list was compiled to honour, recognise and celebrate Irish women who made an impact in their field this year. IMAGE staff were invited to put forward their nominations and all were all taken into account. In the reader nominated category we asked IMAGE readers to let us know who their woman of the year was. The winner was the person who received the most votes.

On receiving feedback in the last few days, we can see clearly that there was an omission of women of colour from the list. All we can do is speak from a place of sincerity and absolute honesty in stating that this was not by design.

At IMAGE it is incredibly important both to management and everyone at team IMAGE that we use our platforms with the utmost integrity and as a space to embolden, inspire and shine a light on all women.

We champion women of different backgrounds across our publications, platforms, covers, awards and podcasts. Going forward, we will strive to be especially aware in ensuring intersectionality across our publications and that we always represent a modern Ireland.

We are extremely grateful to all who have given us their time on this topic, it is because of your voices that we will continue to improve and grow every day.

On receiving feedback we have commissioned pieces for early next year to further celebrate exemplary Irish talent of all ethnicities and backgrounds. Until then we continue to welcome and encourage all feedback and comment, so that in 2019 we can bring you the very best in engaging, relevant, inspiring content.
