CNote Wins WEP Award in the Best Women-Owned Business Category


CNote has been chosen as the winner of the 2020 G7 – EU WEPs Best Women-Owned Business!

The award recognizes Women’s Empower Principles signatories’ exceptional championship of gender equality within their organizations and networks.

CNote’s submission was shortlisted by the UN Women team based on our application, which highlighted our internal measures and external actions taken to drive equality and women’s empowerment. We were then chosen as the winner by an appointed youth jury of young women, with a strong background in gender equality and women’s empowerment. They based their decision on which company they would like to work for, or with, in the future.

CNote co-founder and COO, Yuliya Tarasava, accepted the award at the online award ceremony on December 10th. She spoke about how much this award means to CNote, and how the Women Empowerment Principles are at the heart of everything that CNote does.

“Everything we do here in CNote is guided by our north star: ‘How do we build a more inclusive economy?’ Gender equality and women’s empowerment are the DNA of CNote, not just the investments that we deploy.”
