Nominations for the TAAGA Outstanding Young Professionals Award 2024 is now open!
It is the creativity, passion and dedication of thousands of talented women - artisans, independent producers and designers - who have built TAAGA and continue to make it what it is today. We have always promoted feminism and believe that every woman should have the opportunity to realise her potential.
In the pursuit of this endeavour, we want to recognise young female professionals who stand out.
You have full liberty to decide and nominate participants from your organisation. Here are some general guidelines for your convenience which may help you to select the right candidate for the programme:
1. Women, under the age of 35, who stand out for their extraordinary performance by delivering the expected outcome and setting performance benchmarks.
2. Young professionals, who show creativity by pursuing options that may be risky, new or untried; and willing to learn and implement new methods, ideas and opportunities.
3. Candidates must have strong work ethics and a drive for excellence.
1. Entrepreneurs and business owners cannot nominate themselves.
2. The nominator cannot nominate herself.

On February 11th 2023, the TAAGA Outstanding Young Professionals Award ceremony took place at Army Stadium during BRAC’s Hope Festival. This year, we were proud to recognise and award three winners and six finalists, who have made a significant impact in their respective organisation and have demonstrated excellence in their work.
Winners were featured in a national campaign through which we learned about their stories, heard about their ambitions, and understood what motivated them. They joined a TAAGA Young Professionals alumni network where they were connected with young people across Bangladesh to share career advice, talk about how they navigated the job market, and discuss how today's young people can market themselves.
Bangladesh’s workforce has undergone and is continuing to undergo drastic transformation. Women’s participation has seen steady growth, but it is nowhere near where it needs to be - particularly in the management level. As Bangladesh progresses towards becoming a middle-income country, it has become even more imperative to change that. We join TAAGA in its mission to promote that every woman should have the ability to reach their potential.
