Radicle Science & Council for Responsible Nutrition partnered to create the Trailblazing Woman Award, the nutrition industry’s first to celebrate bold women in wellness. The annual award will honor a woman for outstanding #leadership#mentorship, and industry commitment.

Nominations are open through Sept. 13, exclusively for CRN members.

The award recipient will:

  • Receive a $2500 grant, which can be used for leadership and board training, mentorship opportunities, and career development;
  • Be featured in a Fast Company article; and
  • Have opportunities to appear in webinars and talks organized by Radicle Science, CRN, and partners.


 “We’re very excited to announce this award during Women’s History Month. These are the very women who are shaping both the history and future of the industry—and thus impacting consumer health in meaningful ways,” shared Pelin Wood Thorogood, Cofounder and Chairwoman, Radicle Science. “Considering more women use supplements than men, it’s critical to support female leaders in the industry and help close the gender gap that currently exists.”

“CRN member companies are leaders in the dietary supplement and functional food space, committed to the highest quality standards and ethical best practices to provide consumers with products that are safe, beneficial, and essential to their health and wellbeing,” said Gretchen Powers, VP, Marketing and Member Experience, CRN. “This award will honor the excellence of women within these companies who have elevated the industry through their work.”
