The Champion Awards

April 4 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$99 – $119


The Champion Awards are back!

Last year’s unforgettable gala saw hundreds of professional women and allies coming together to nominate, vote for, award and celebrate the people that propel us forward. In today’s polarized world of us vs. them, entrenchment and finger pointing, we believe it is more important than ever to recognize the companies, people and organizations who demonstrate behaviors we want to see more of. We want to shine the spotlight on women’s allies; to celebrate those who have done right by us; to say thanks where thanks are due.

The Champion Awards are driven by professional women of all backgrounds and origins that live in the Pacific Northwest. We invite you to nominate YOUR champions and to vote for YOUR winners. Every single nominee will be notified and recognized. Through this process, you’ll have the power to encourage more of the behavior you want to see. Imagine if we all do that, the change we can achieve together. Nominate and vote at

In 2018, more than 100 people and organizations were nominated, and hundreds of professional women in the Pacific Northwest voted for their champions. Winners included Moz CEO Sarah Bird, F Bomb Breakfast Club Founder Megan McNally, Women In Cloud Founder Chaitra Vedullapalli, angel investors Sarah Imbach and Serena Glover, and more. At the gala, we heard from Washington Senator Patty Murray and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, along with industry leaders and role models. This year will be even more special and packed with surprises.

The Champion Awards are brought to you by the Female Founders Alliance, in partnership with Reverb. Learn more at Last year’s gala sold out – we hope you’ll join us this year for a night of inspiration and recognition.

Cocktail attire suggested.
