The 2015 Gala Dinner and Induction Ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2015 during IAEM-USA 63rd Annual Conference & EMEX Exhibit, Paris Hotel, Clark County, Nevada.

 

inWEM will honor extraordinary women who are pioneers and contemporary leaders in the fields of civil defense, emergency management, and homeland security in local, state, tribal, and federal governments and global innovators in critical infrastructure facilities; volunteer, faith, and community-based organizations; the private and nonprofit sectors; academia; the military; and private industry.

 

The nominator and the selected nominee must be present at the 2015 Induction Ceremonies, to receive the award and participate in the induction ceremony.

 

The inductees, representing Pioneers (achievement prior to 1970) and Contemporary Achievers (1970 – present) are selected because of their outstanding achievements and significant contributions, in the fields of emergency services, civil defense, emergency management, and homeland security, in communities around the world. The inductees were also selected because of their commitment to women’s and girl’s causes and for their ability to motivate and inspire young women envisioning careers in public service and emergency services.

 

We will induct women/women’s organizations, who have made significant contributions to the field of emergency management and services to women and children, into the Hall of Fame.  From 2011 to 2014, 63 women and women’s organizations were inducted into the Hall of Fame.
