‘’Utjecajne hrvatske žene su ključ razvoja i brend društva. Cilj nam je ukazati na njihov važan doprinos u svim aspektima društva, a naša je misija inspirirati i podići svijest o istaknutim hrvatskim ženama, koje djeluju u akademskoj zajednici, poduzetništvu, znanosti, kulturi, oružanim snagama i vjerskim institucijama”, rekla je Caroline Spivak, osnivačica Mreže hrvatskih žena i utemeljiteljica nagrade ’’Utjecajne hrvatske žene’’.
