Women Of Innovation®

Women Of Innovation®


The Women of Innovation® awards gala recognizes women accomplished in science, technology, engineering, math and those who are involved in their community. This awards event is a time for like-minded, successful women to network and celebrate their accomplishments.

Diane Smith

Connecticut’s own Diane Smith will Emcee the 2017 Women of Innovation.

Join us as we celebrate the Women of Innovation who make Connecticut’s businesses and institutions strong leaders on the cutting edge. The Women of Innovation® event seeks to create a growing network of women in the “trenches” of STEM. Our finalists are the scientists, researchers, academics, manufacturers, student leaders, drafters, entrepreneurs, and technicians who create tomorrow’s advancements through their tireless efforts today.

We are pleased to announce that Connecticut’s own Diane Smith will once again be Emcee for the evening’s festivities.

Join us on March 29, 2017 at the AquaTurf Club in Southington to celebrate the women who make the tech ecosystem in Connecticut what it is.

Use our Nomination Criteria and Eligibility Requirements to guide the completion of the nomination. We look forward to seeing you and your nominees on March 29!
