On October 6th, 2022, Women & Hi Tech will host its signature biennial event, the Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala (LLAs). We are so excited it is back in person this year! This prestigious event focuses on celebrating Indiana women, including diverse women, in STEM – women who are risk-takers, leaders, educators, mentors, and those who are changing and impacting our local STEM landscape.
As we began in the 2020 LLAs, Women & Hi Tech will again honor our male allies and our Diversity Equity and Inclusion Champions at this exceptional event. During the Leading Light Awards and Scholarship Gala, we will also award scholarships and grants to women and girls in Indiana pursuing degrees and/or continuing their education in STEM fields. We would be delighted to have you and your organization join us for this remarkable evening at the Indiana Rooftop Ballroom!
Thank you so much to the Signature Sponsor of the 2022 Leading Light Awards, Eli Lilly & Company!
The theme of this year’s event will be focused on how we are all “In This Together.” The last two years have had impacts on the world that none of us could have imagined. Focusing on how we have come together during these challenging times, particularly in the STEM community, has been encouraging experience and we are hopeful this sense of community and support will only grow going forward.
