International Announcement
IWIRC 2018 Asia Woman of the Year in Restructuring Award

IWIRC is delighted to announce the inaugural Asia Woman of the Year in Restructuring Award (WOYR Asia) sponsored by Vannin Capital, to honour a woman in Asia for her recent contributions to or lifetime achievements as part of the restructuring and insolvency industry.
The WOYR Asia complements the pre-existing award programme called “Woman of the Year in Restructuring Award (WOYR)” which has been administered by IWIRC internationally since 2006. Winners of that award are typically announced at one of the IWIRC conferences in the United States. 
While the WOYR award is open to anyone across the globe, the WOYR Asia is designed specifically to recognise practitioners based in Asia, and will be presented at the 2nd IWIRC Asia Restructuring and Insolvency Conference to be held on Thursday, 8 November 2018 in Hong Kong.  The winner will be recognised with a trophy and prize money equivalent to USD1,000 which will be donated to a charity of their choice.

The award is open to any female professional in the restructuring and insolvency industry based in Asia - including, lawyers, judges, bankers, accountants, turnaround managers, restructuring advisers and academicians. She could be actively engaged in or recently retired from the restructuring and insolvency industry.

IWIRC membership is NEITHER a requirement to make a nomination, nor to be honoured. Self-nominations are permitted. Completed nomination form (300 word limit) should be sent by email to by Friday, 5 October 2018.

An FAQ can be found at the end of the nomination form.  If you have any other queries, please click here to contact the IWIRC WOYR Asia Committee.

Member Testimonials

"IWIRC is one of the few platforms that allow professionals to network, catch up, exchange thoughts, give and receive advice on personal, career-related or job-connected issues, have fun together and above all that-- build relationships without being under the pressure to pitch or impression to "be pitched" constantly. This is a place beyond a permanent vanity fair."
