What are the WIH Awards?

The WIH Awards are an opportunity for us to lift each other up and to showcase our community of strong women. Offered annually, the Women in Healthcare Awards Luncheon is held at our National LeadHERship Summit. Each award is given to one woman or company in each category.

Application Process

The Women in Healthcare Advisory board will judge applicants on predetermined criteria. Each application will be reviewed blindly and ranked by the selection committee based on these qualifiers. It is important to the Women in Healthcare community that these awards are scored in a way that eliminates bias and promotes equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Submissions for 2024 are now closed and no longer accepting submissions.
