2020 Leading Light Awards

About the Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala (LLAs)

The Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala (LLAs) will be held on October 1, 2020 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. This signature, biennial event organized and hosted by Women & Hi Tech focuses on celebrating Indiana women in STEM - women who are risk-takers, leaders, educators, mentors, and those who are changing our local STEM landscape. During this 20th Anniversary of the first Leading Light Awards – originally the Spotlight Awards - and the incorporation of the organization, Women & Hi Tech will also award at least $20,000 of scholarships and grants to women in Indiana pursuing STEM fields through its #LLA20for20 campaign. In addition, and new this year at the 2020 LLAs, Women & Hi Tech will honor our male allies, as well as our diversity, equity, and inclusion champions.
