El Paso Inc.'s first Emerging Women of Impact conference took place at El Paso High on Saturday, Nov. 5. All participating students were hand selected to attend the program by their schools' administration. 

Thank you to all who submitted nominations and applications to the 2022 Women of Impact.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Who selects the Women of Impact winners?

The El Paso Inc. editorial board conducts the first round of scoring to determine the finalists. A panel of past Women of Impact honorees evaluate the finalists independently and determine the winners.

2. How are candidates evaluated? The selection committees scores all applications in these four areas:

  • Local impact: The effect the nominee’s efforts have had on the local community
  • Level of involvement: The time spent.
  • Breadth of reach: Scope of activities or projects (how wide reaching the person is).
  • Professional achievements: Up to and including family; a homemaker is a profession.

4. When will the Women of Impact winners be announced?

They will be announced in August and will be featured in a special section of El Paso Inc. Magazine fall issue.

5. When is the awards ceremony?

It was held on September 27, 2022 at Hotel Paso Del Norte
