Time is almost up! Nominations for the 2017 Excellence in Leadership Awards are due Wednesday, April 12, 2017. The ICCW (Interagency Committee for Change by Women) reminds you to nominate individuals who are making a difference in the lives of others, who recognize the value of women in the workplace and encourage women to move forward through their leadership.
The Excellence in Leadership awards, once known as the “Breaking the Glass Ceiling Awards” are given each year in three categories:
- State Government (service in executive, legislative or judicial branches,)
- Public Sector (local, nonprofit, tribal or federal governments)
- Private Sector (business, entrepreneur, executive management or other areas.)
The ICCW seeks to honor individuals for exemplary leadership or for outstanding efforts to assist women to excel in the workplace.
To nominate someone, please fill out the nomination packet posted online at: http://hr.mt.gov/iccw. The nominations must include a completed nomination form, a nominee description (outlined in the packet,) a biography and resume of the nominee, a letter of endorsement and any supporting materials to enhance the nomination.
***The postmark deadline for submissions is April 7, 2017 and the electronic submission (email or fax) deadline is April 12, 2017. ***
The award recipients will be chosen by a selection panel. Winners will be recognized at a ceremony in Helena at the State Capitol on the afternoon of Thursday, May 18, 2017.
ICCW, established by Executive Order of the Governor in 1976, creates positive change for all state employees by promoting the full participation of women in state government. These awards are a part of the organization’s ongoing mission, which also includes such other events as Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, participation in the Equal Pay for Equal Work Task Force and numerous other volunteer and civic activities.
