The DFLA 2022 with the Journey to Diversity 2022 Awards Ceremony.

On April 11, 2022, the Digital Female Leader Award, the most important prize in the female digital scene in the DACH region, started for the fifth time in a row.

Under this year’s motto “Trailblazers of the Next Generation”, we dedicate the award to the various paths of our female leaders as well as the stewardship that brands, decision-makers, and teams take on daily through a wide variety of initiatives. This stewardship has paved the way for today’s generation and will expand it even more for the next.

Final Event

Struggling to find women in the digital economy? Not having any luck?! Well, we assure you, they exist. They are founders and designers in companies, politics and society who are driving forward and sustainably shaping digitization. With the #DFLA – an initiative of Global Digital Women – we want to make the stories and career paths of women visible. You applied or nominated women, who you see as role models or inspire you, in several categories, such as: Digital Transformation, Entrepreneurship, Health, Lifestyle, Mobility and many more. There are three finalists of each category and the winners of each category will be announced during the Journey to Diversity. During this period also the awards will be handed over to the winners.


09/09/2022 to 26/09/2022

This year, we will again travel to the winners of #DFLA22 between September 9 and 26, 2022 with the help of the mobility services of Deutsche Bahn, our host of the Journey to Diversity 2022. Together with our partners and jury members, we will bestow the awards in person, increasing visibility of the recipients’ careers and stories.

What is the Journey to Diversity?

Unique, personal & heartwarming – that’s #DFLA’s annual awards ceremony – called the Journey to Diversity! It’s the most exciting award ceremony of the year. A tour that only exists at #DFLA! This way the award comes directly to the winners’ homes and sheds even more light on their success stories.

18 days around the globe (09.09.22 – 26.09.22). The winners – self-made, courageous, honest and exciting personalities – reveal their career journey at the Journey. Experts from the tech, finance, beauty, mobility, energy industries and many more!

Stories that get under your skin, disarmingly open conversations, information on the pulse, outrageous questions – which they themselves actively ask in advance via social – and surprising answers. Including ups and downs. The viewers dive with them into the first ignition of the business idea, into the most difficult career decisions, the biggest non-material gains – all the way to the current challenge.

A lively format, immediate, genuine with added value on all levels. It will be incredibly funny, it will be challenging, it will be heartbreaking! The Journey To Diversity will be exciting, hair-raisingly educational, moving, compelling, and full of unexpected developments!
