For nearly two decades, we’ve been celebrating and empowering women all around the world. The Women of Concern Awards Luncheon is a celebration of the accomplishments of women and girls around the world. This year, Concern is proud to recognize the achievements of exceptional women who are using their platform to amplify the voices of mothers and children throughout the world. Our co-honorees Aedhmar Hynes, Chairman of The Page Society and former Text100 CEO, and Allison Robinson, CEO of The Mom Project exemplify this mission.

Get ready for an inspiring luncheon, lively discussion, and the opportunity to make a big impact on programs that serve women and children like Clotilde and her daughter Ines (photographed above), whose lives and community have been transformed by Concern’s livelihoods, cash for work, and micro-finance programs in Cibitoke, Burundi.
 
Aedhmar Hynes, Chairman of The Page Society and former CEO of Text100
A native of Galway, Ireland, Aedhmar Hynes is ranked among the top 50 most powerful communications professionals in the world. Today she is based in New York City and most recently was the Chief Executive Officer of Text100 — the largest independent digital communications agency with 22 offices and over 600 consultants across Europe, North America and Asia. Her consulting work has included clients such as Adobe, American Express, Cisco, Harmon, IBM, MTV and British Airways. Aedhmar has advised and supported many of the world’s most important brands through digital transformation and technology disruption.

Aedhmar was recently elected Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The Page Society, the preeminent industry body for Chief Communications Officers of Fortune 500 companies. In 2016 she was appointed to the MIT Media Lab Advisory Board, the leading technology research institute addressing many of the world’s biggest challenges. She was awarded a Henry Crown Fellowship by The Aspen Institute in 2008 in recognition of her business development and leadership.
 
Allison Robinson, CEO of The Mom Project
After having her son Asher in 2015, Allison Robinson identified firsthand how universally challenging it can be for American mothers to juggle the demands of motherhood with a full-time career and decided to tackle the issue on a national scale. Prior to founding The Mom Project, Allison spent 8 years at Procter and Gamble working on go-to-market strategies for leading household brands with a special focus on moms during her tenure on the Pampers brand. As CEO, Allison is responsible for delivering on the company's mission of building a better workplace for women while supporting customers through innovative talent solutions that help them attract and retain the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives they need to propel their businesses forward. In 2019, The Mom Project launched The Women’s Work Initiative, a groundbreaking program designed to maximize female workforce participation.
