Held in conjunction with International Women’s Day, Lazada hosted the second edition of the Lazada Forward Women Awards 2022. Adding four new award categories this year, a total of 18 women entrepreneurs owning successful businesses on Lazada were recognised across seven award categories.

The awards ceremony was held at Lazada’s flagship office and Singapore headquarters, Lazada One, and broadcasted on the LazLive channel in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. It spotlighted the achievements of the award recipients who found their creative niche, challenged social norms and grew the success of their businesses through the Lazada platform.

This year, there were a total of seven award categories, as the CreativeEnterprising and Inspiring categories made a comeback, with the addition of Rising StarBricks to Clicks Tech AdopterSocial Star and the most prestigious Lazada Forward Woman of the Year Award. Top honours – the Lazada Forward Woman of the Year Award – were conferred to six sellers from each of the territories Lazada operates in.
