International Women in Homeland Security Hall of Fame Gala Dinner and Induction Ceremony

Saturday, November 15, 2014

 

The 4th Annual Gala Reception and Induction Ceremony of the 2014 “International Women in Homeland Security and Emergency Management Hall of Fame” will be held on Saturday, November 15, 2014, during IAEM-USA 62nd Annual Conference & EMEX Exhibit, at the Grand Hyatt & Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, Texas. The 2014 Theme is “Making History: Vision, Diversity, Inclusion, Leadership, and Legacy”.

 

The Hall of Fame is one of inWEM’s major initiatives, honoring women who are pioneers and leaders in the field of homeland security and emergency management in local, State, tribal, and Federal governments. Women around the world have been innovators in critical infrastructure facilities; volunteer, faith, and community based organizations; the private and nonprofit sectors; academia; military; and private industry will also be honored.

 

This award honors the contributions’ individuals make in the advancement of women in emergency management and a culture of preparedness for safer, resilient, and sustainable diverse communities. It also serves as a beacon of light for those, whose footsteps will follow. Some children live in homes where there is a role model and a beacon of hope; others are not as fortunate, where there is no one to emulate. Young girls and women around the world need to see, hear, and read about you; someone who reaches out and encourages them to follow your career path.
