Each year, the awards program honors 80+ leaders who have made a lasting impact on their brands, organizations and markets—spotlighting the diversity and progress of our industry.

Do you know a woman who is innovating media and ad tech in new ways and guiding her business into new markets? Then she deserves to join the ranks of Top Women in Media & Ad Tech Honorees like Myrna Blyth of AARP, Laura Boodram of FatTail, Sarah McConville of Harvard Business Review, Alison Overholt of ESPN, Lauren Stephenson of GroundTruth, Martha Stewart of Martha Stewart Living & Martha Stewart Weddings, Deborah Kadetsky of SHE Media, Bonnie Kintzer of Trusted Media Brands, Angelique Jackson of Variety and more.

Honorees will be recognized at the Awards Gala on June 6, 2022 in New York City, receiving industry-wide coverage and recognition in both AdMonsters and AdExchanger sites, via email and social media. The prestige of joining the ranks of this exceptional group of women will last a lifetime!
