WiT reveals new plans for 2022 Wonder Women Awards

Following the news that Toy Fair New York will be taking another year off due to concerns over COVID-19 and the spread of its variants, adjacent events are now adjusting plans for 2022.

Last week, Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment (WiT) revealed that it is pivoting the long-awaited return of its Wonder Women Awards to a special “Wonder Women at Home” event. The winners, which were originally slated to be honored at an in-person gala on Sunday, Feb. 20, will now be announced on March 1 via press release with the Wonder Women at Home experience to follow at a later date. The Wonder Women Awards recognizes and honors remarkable leaders, entrepreneurs, and changemakers for their outstanding contributions in the toy, licensing, and entertainment industries.
