The selection process was rigorous, reflecting the high standards of accomplishment and contribution among nominees. The initiative began with an open call for nominations from industry peers, urging them to highlight female leaders who have made notable advances and contributions over the past year.

An independent panel of judges, comprising respected figures from various industry associations and organizations, collaborated with the IBA team to assess the nominations. This esteemed panel included:
