The DVF Awards was founded in 2010 by Diane von Furstenberg and The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation to recognize and support extraordinary women who are dedicated to transforming the lives of other women; women who have had the courage to fight, the power to survive, and the leadership to inspire. Honorees are celebrated annually at the DVF Awards ceremony as a part of the Women in the World conference. Each year, five awards are bestowed to women who have demonstrated leadership, strength, and courage in their commitment to advocate for women’s causes. The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation grants each honoree $50,000 for their non-profit organization in order to further help their important work.
