The awards program, initiated as part of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry celebrations, was created to acknowledge and promote the work of women chemists/chemical engineers worldwide. The 12 awardees were selected based on excellence in basic or applied research, distinguished accomplishments in teaching or education or demonstrated leadership or managerial excellence in the chemical sciences. The Awards Committee was particularly interested in nominees with a history of leadership and/or community service during their careers.

An award ceremony will take place during the IUPAC World Chemistry Congress in São Paulo, Brazil in July coinciding with a special symposium on Women in Chemistry and reception in honor of the recipients.
