Women Making History Awards

The Women Making History Awards Gala Returns March 2023!

We are thrilled to gather again on Friday, March 31, 2023, to celebrate women's contributions—past, present and future—during the Women Making History Awards Gala held at The Schuyler in Washington, D.C.

We invite you join us at the Women Making History Awards Gala to enjoy an elegant, empowering, and inspiring evening. Guests will enjoy cocktails, a formal seated dinner, live entertainment, and much, much more.

To reserve your seats or learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please email Leah Craft, vice president of development.
It’s the individuals and corporations who attend and sponsor the Women Making History Awards Gala that make it possible to raise the critical funds needed to create exhibitions and provide free, accessible public programing to educators and learners of all ages nationwide.
