Momentum Leadership Awards

Momentum’s Woman of Impact Award honors Alabama women leaders who do extraordinary work to positively impact lives of others in the community, business, culture or politics. The award is presented every other year in conjunction with Momentum’s biennial leadership conference.

Often the achievements of women go undocumented. Momentum strives to elevate the great women of our state by highlighting their achievements. Our award honorees are truly distinguished women leaders who have a lifetime of accomplishments in the service of others.

Momentum is currently accepting nominations through November 17, 2017 for the Spring 2018 Woman of Impact Awards. Nominees must be a woman, a native of Alabama or have made significant contributions within Alabama, must be a living citizen, must impact the community, business, culture or politics, and must be able to attend the ceremony on February 27, 2018.
