Each spring, the community has come together to honor community members who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and made a meaningful impact on fellow students, the campus, and/or the community at our Women's Leadership Celebration (formerly referred to as Women's Leadership Award Ceremony). These celebrations have held space for speeches from and acknowledgement of our Women's Leadership Award recipient, Women in STEM Mentorship Program Mentor of the Year, and the Professional Achievement Award recipient. Invitations to the celebration and awards are announced in mid-spring through the Women's Center newsletter and social media accounts.
These awards, collectively known as The Harvard College Women's Leadership Awards have recognized deserving women annually since 1998, and the WiSTEM Mentor of the Year award was first awarded in 2018. Previously, all recipients were honored at the annual Women's Leadership Award Ceremony held toward the end of April. Starting in 2020, the Women's Center has hosted a week-long celebration over social media to honor women's leadership and will be moving this celebration to March as a capstone to Women's History Month.
