Celebrating Women
Making a Difference

The Women's Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding women for their achievements and contributions to Alameda County and its residents. The program honors women in 13 different categories at a luncheon and awards ceremony held each year. Through this event and other community activities, the Women's Hall of Fame generates funds to support organizations that help women and families in Alameda County, including efforts to provide comprehensive breast cancer prevention, education, and treatment services.
