Nominate a leader who makes a difference in advancing women

March 29, 2018 Kerry Seitz

Is there an executive at your organization whose advocacy for advancing women has created impact? Share their story with us.

Each year, excitement grows here at our Boston headquarters as stories of inspiration, courage and change start pouring in for consideration for our Executive Impact Award. This year, we will once again be selecting three executives who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing women leaders and consistently go above and beyond to make a difference.

This is your opportunity to recognize an exceptional leader and give them the opportunity to share their insights in front of 800 women leaders at Linkage’s Women in Leadership Institute. The deadline for entries is Friday, April 13, 2018, at 5:00 PM ET.


The 2017 Women in Leadership Conference in Dallas, Texas.
The 2017 Executive Impact Award winners participate in a panel led by Carla Harris at the Women in Leadership Institute.



Over the years, we’ve honored remarkable leaders from a variety of industries. Our 2017 winners shared memorable words of wisdom on stage last year that our attendees were talking about for weeks after the Institute.

In previous years, we honored Jeannine Rivet, a health care pioneer who is described by her colleagues at UnitedHealth Group as the “Queen of Culture” and Jayne Parker, Disney’s Head of HR, who appointed their first-ever Chief Diversity Officer.

Our 2018 winners will be announced on this blog in May, and they will be honored at Linkage’s Women in Leadership Institute in Phoenix, AZ, on November 14, 2018.
