Jan. 11, ALAMEDA COUNTY – The deadline is Thursday, January 31 to nominate an outstanding local woman to the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame, which is celebrating its 26th year of honoring extraordinary women making a difference in the community.
Submit a nomination today at http://www.acgov.org/whof/. Honorees will be celebrated at the 26th Annual Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame Luncheon and Awards Ceremony on Saturday, March 30, 2019, at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Oakland.
Once again, this inspiring event will be co-hosted by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors and the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women.
The Women’s Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations in 13 categories: Business and Professions; Community Service; Culture and Art; Education; Emerging Leader; Environment; Health; Justice; Non-Traditional Careers; Science, Technology, Engineering; Sports and Athletics; Philanthropy; and Youth. More than 200 women have been inducted into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame since the program was launched in 1993.
In addition to honoring extraordinary women leaders from Alameda County, the annual event raises funds for youth scholarships and helps support local nonprofit community partners serving women, youth and families.
The Women’s Hall of Fame is a countywide event held in conjunction with National Women’s History month in March. In 2019, we expect another sellout with more than 500 people on hand to recognize the achievements of our inductees and to contribute support to our youth and community partners. The 2018 Women’s Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in February.
