Over twenty years ago, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, the Alameda County Health Care Foundation, and the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women established a permanent Women's Hall of Fame to honor outstanding local women for their contributions to our community.
Since 1993, every year during the spring time, the County holds a special Women’s Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony and Luncheon to honor the women who will be inducted to the Hall of Fame. There are over 250 inductees who comprise the Women's Hall of Fame.
The Women’s Hall of Fame supports women, youth and families by making charitable donations to community-based organizations in Alameda County. The Women's Hall of Fame Mary V. King "Leading the Way" Youth Scholarship Fund helps propel young leaders to meaningful civic engagement.
To our honorees, past and present, we ask that you continue to connect, engage and inspire others. We welcome your ideas on how we, together, can best carry on the legacy of the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame.
Community partners are selected by the WHOF Honorary Committee and the Commission on the Status of Women.
