The 2023 Forbes and Know Your Value '50 Over 50' nominations are open now

We are currently looking for our next class of women who are proving that success has no age limit.

In 2021, Forbes and Know Your Value released the inaugural “50 Over 50” list, which spotlights women who have rejected the conventional wisdom that their best years are behind them.

These women are leading a movement: We received more than 10,000 submissions for the 2021’s first “50 Over 50” list. And, we’ve since expanded the list from the U.S. to Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. And now, we’re looking to do it for a third year in a row.

We continue to seek women who are actively stepping into their power in their sixth decade or beyond. We’re looking for stories about accelerating or recreating careers to reach the highest echelons of a business or field after turning 50—with an eye on women who have overcome significant odds and are creating businesses at scale.

Do you know someone who belongs on our next list? Submit your nomination here for our 2023 “50 Over 50” list. The full guidelines are below, and for ideas and inspiration, see our 2022 “50 Over 50” list here, or our inaugural edition here. Check out our guidelines below:
