Looking for a New Year’s resolution? Here’s one: nominate an exceptional female colleague for a McKnight’s Women of Distinction award.

The deadline is Jan. 8 to show your appreciation for a dedicated woman who has positively affected your organization. The competition, held by McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and sister brand McKnight’s Senior Living, recognizes women in two categories: Hall of Honor, who are at the level of vice president (or equivalent) or higher and have made a significant impact in their organizations; and Rising Stars, who have less than 15 years of experience in the industry or no more than 40 years old, and demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the industry. A lifetime achievement award also will be bestowed and honorees will be celebrated at a May awards event in Chicago.

For more information and to nominate someone (hey, why not you?) for recognition, visit mcknights.com/womenofdistinction. Last year’s awards highlighted the accomplishments of 41 women across a range of titles and responsibilities. Watch this this video recap to get a glimpse of the rousing 2019 awards ceremony event. You can read more about last year’s event and honorees here.

PointClickCare is the Diamond sponsor of this year’s event, and OnShift and PharMerica are Silver sponsors.
