Women to Watch seeks to recognize women who are changing the industry and making names for themselves at companies of all kinds—brands, agencies, technology providers or media platforms. Honorees are groundbreakers, forward thinkers and rainmakers in the marketing and advertising realm who are blazing trails with new solutions, standout creative work and business-building initiatives.

All honorees are handpicked by the editorial staff at Ad Age. Winners will be notified and interviewed in May and profiled in a special report honoring the Women to Watch class of 2018. An honoree luncheon will be held in New York City on August 2, 2018.
