    Women of Achievement

                      
     

        The Women of Achievement Awards were established in 1999 by the YWCA of Summit County to increase community awareness, understanding and appreciation of women and the doors they open for future generations.

        In 2005, Women’s Network, Inc. became the host for these prestigious community awards. It is our privilege to honor women who have made a difference in our community.

        Individuals, businesses and organizations can nominate women from the community within the public or private sector for this prestigious award. Women’s Network selects recipients based on their history of encouraging success among women, breaking down barriers, mentoring, taking risks to overcome obstacles and supporting the progress of women toward full participation in economic, community and family life. Additionally, these award winners have gone beyond their own personal or career accomplishments to give back to the community.

       The 2015 Women of Achievement Awards luncheon will take place on June 5th. To attend, register here.

       
    Nominations for this award must be submitted by March 6, 2015. Use this form to submit a nomination.

    Judith Resnik is an inspiration for all women. A 1966 graduate of Firestone High School in Akron, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1970, and a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1977.

    On January 28, 1986, Dr. Resnik and her fellow crew members tragically perished when the space shuttle Challenger exploded just 73 seconds after takeoff.

    To keep her memory alive, Women’s Network, Inc. established a scholarship fund to be annually awarded to a female high school senior who has been accepted into an appropriate baccalaureate program at a four-year, accredited college and is pursuing a career in math, science or engineering. The scholarship award is $1,000 per academic year and is renewable for a total of four years.
