The WERT Global Prize | Columbia Journalism School

The WERT Global Prize

The WERT Global Prize honors excellence in business journalism by a woman for work that fosters a greater understanding of global business and economics.


The WERT Global Prize was established in 2018 with funding by a bequest from The Women’s Economic Round Table and has received support from the Muriel F. Siebert Foundation and the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.

The recipient of the prize receives $2,000 for work published in English by an established media organization on any platform – print, radio, broadcast or digital. Books, films and self-published works are not eligible. 

The Women's Economic Round Table was founded in 1978 by Dr. Amelia Augustus and Maria Rolfe.
