The 2018 Leading Light Awards will be held on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.  Every two years, Women & Hi Tech hosts the Leading Light Awards (LLA) to recognize and celebrate women of achievement in STEM fields - women who are innovators in their industries, and have shown expertise, professionalism, leadership, service, courage, and tenacity throughout their careers.

We also support the next generation of women in STEM by awarding traditional undergraduate and graduate scholarships as well as professional development scholarships to women already in the workforce.  These scholarships are awarded to women in Indiana, who intend to stay in Indiana upon graduation.
