More than 50 top women in the long-term and senior care industry will be honored next week during the McKnight’s Women of Distinction Awards and Forum virtual events. 

McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and McKnight’s Senior Living are honoring this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner Mary Ousley, 19 Hall of Honor inductees, 15 Veteran VIPs and 17 Rising Stars during an awards program on Tuesday. Each will be featured in her own congratulatory video segment in an online program that also will feature VIP guest appearances and other special touches.

The awards program will be followed by the first McKnight’s Women of Distinction Forum on Wednesday. That event will feature three educational webinars, each carrying the ability to earn one free CE credit. 

Ousley and a host of other top executives will serve as featured speakers for the webinars. Sessions will focus on top issues of the day, as well as career-building facets such as mentoring, networking, career advancement, and establishing organizational culture, among others.

There is no cost to attend any of the elements but registration is necessary.
