“Woman of the Year – 2017” Awards ceremony 

‘Woman of the Year 2017’ awards ceremony was held on the evening of May 27th at the ceremony hall of the Marriott Hotel in Paris.

The ‘Woman of the Year’awards ceremonies are truly our favourite event, each year. So far, 2017 has shown us women globally excelling in their profession. To highlight just a few, we saw numerous Mongolian women elected as MP’s in Mongolia,and witnessed the second female Prime Minister take office in the UK. Strong, brave, professional, beautiful women worldwide have shown us that one can achieve and do great things. Now in its 6th year, ‘Woman of the Year’ is for the first time being hosted in, the city of lights, Paris.  At the Women of the Year Awards evening, ADMWE honoured inspiring Mongolian women from across Europe in many fields. We congratulate them and we wish them every success in their future.

We hope you will find stories and women to be inspired by. And with that, we are pleased to introduce our ‘Woman of the Year 2017’ awards winners:

ADMWE was delighted that Naran.S, famous Mongolian pop singer, performed at the awards ceremony and we would like to specially thank Ms Onchinsuren Dendevsambuu CEO, Deloitte Mongolia for sponsoring Naran’s concert. Naran has represented Mongolia on the stages of UNESCO, the UN and the Bolshoi Theatre showcasing Mongolian talent and culture to the world as well as representing Mongolian women and surely giving inspiration to many. Thank you Naran, your performance was flawless.

During the evening event, we were presented with a fashion show, previewing Sarangerel Cashmere’s beautifully crafted A/W17 collection, Mongolian contortionist and Mongolian national folk music performances were unique. Our charity auction and raffles successfully raised ₮10 million. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one involved in our auction and raffles as well as members of ADMWE who donate tirelessly every year for this wonderful cause, I could name them all night long.

Without assistance and sincere support from all, this humanitarian evening event would not be successful therefore on behalf of the ADMWE we would like to thank the following organisations, companies and authorities:
