Celebrating Women Making a Difference

The Alameda County Women's Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding women for their achievements and contributions to Alameda County and its residents. This award is in recognition of a legacy of work - both in professional careers and/or volunteer service - that has made a positive impact in the lives of residents in Alameda County. For 2024's celebration, the Hall of Fame will honor women in up to 12 categories: Business & Professions, Culture & Art, Community Service, Education, Emerging Leaders, Environmental, Health, Justice, Non-Traditional, Philanthropy, Science-Tech-Engineering, and Sports & Athletics.

Nominations for 2024 inductees are being accepted through March 18, 2024. Only nominations submitted through this website will be considered. Please note that elected officials, members of the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women, and board members of Vision Alameda County are not eligible for nominations.

Selected inductees will be honored at a special luncheon and inductee ceremony on Saturday, May 4, 2024, at The Club at Castlewood in Pleasanton, California.

Through this event and other community activities, the Alameda County Women's Hall of Fame generates funds to support organizations that help and support women and families in Alameda County.
