GSA is now accepting nominations for the Women of Influence Award (formerly named the Rising Women of Influence Award). Please complete the following nomination form for the female leader you feel is worthy of this prestigious award.

About the Award

The GSA Women of Influence Award (formerly named the Rising Women of Influence Award) will recognize three to four female nominees that are believed by their individual companies to be a rising star.  Their company should clearly think that their nominees’ exceptional contributions toward the development, innovation, growth and success of the company will result in her being one of the top leaders at their company in the next three years. Nominations will be reviewed by an all-female executive committee that will select the top 3 candidates for recognition at the annual GSA Awards Celebration in December. The recipient will be announced at the GSA Awards Celebration.
