The Shakti Awards were founded in 2000 to recognize and honour women who have displayed Shakti-strength and energy, in their community, locally or globally. Shakti is the mother Goddess, the source of all, the universal principle of energy, power and creativity and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe. Not only is Shakti responsible for creation, it is also the agent of all change.
The accomplishments of the women amongst us represent an inspiring account of positive social, cultural and economic change in the world. The Shakti Awards are an opportunity for us to recognize these women and share their vibrant stories.
Do you know a woman who deserves to be recognized as a leader, advocate, artist or visionary? This is your chance to give them recognition.
