NEAR Foundation announces the top 10 winners of this year’s Women in Web3 Changemakers competition200 nominations in totalWomen were selected by public voteWomen hail from all corners of the globeTORONTO, June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NEAR Foundation, the Swiss non-profit that supports the governance and development of the NEAR protocol,  today published the final top Women in Web3 Changemakers 2023 list. 

The women were chosen by the public from a shortlist selected from hundreds of applications based on the following judging criteria: inclusion – driving ideas that are good for society and sustainable; influence – making an impact in the Web3 community and among peers; and innovation – contributing to important and necessary projects at work or independently.
The list of award winners highlights the achievements of women in Web3 and the importance of having visible female role models in the ecosystem.
Commenting on the winners, Marieke Flament, CEO of the NEAR Foundation said: “This is a remarkable list of outstanding women who have truly made their mark in a highly competitive and challenging environment, where opportunities are not always accessible to everyone, especially women. These Changemakers show that we can forge our own path into the ecosystem and create a collective narrative that has the power to break down barriers to entry and make Web3 more inclusive for everyone. I am extremely honoured to be championing this initiative and to spotlight these exceptionally talented women. I am equally grateful for the hundreds of nominations we received from peers and employers who took the time to highlight the many achievements that the global female workforce have made to their organisations. By casting their ballot, the international community has shown that the contributions of women are being noticed and that together we can make a positive difference to the collective good of Web3.”
Flament added: “It is important that we continue to help one another and maintain a strong, international community that includes both men and women. Together we can inspire one another, become each other’s role models and level the playing field for the next generation of women.”
