Now’s the time to submit nominations for the McKnight’s 2021 Women of Distinction Awards program. 

The third annual awards competition recognizes top women leaders in long-term and senior care. It is again being administered by McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and McKnight’s Senior Living.

Last year’s program honored 44 women in two categories: Hall of Honor and Rising Stars. This year’s program adds a third category: Veteran VIPs, which honors longtime leaders who fit between the other designations. 

Eligible for recognition are women working as direct care providers, managers, executives, corporate executives and owners in skilled nursing facilities, as well as those working in independent living, assisted living, memory care and life plan communities. Women who serve the field indirectly, for instance as association staff members, academicians or thought leaders, also are eligible. Individuals working for vendor companies are not eligible.

The nomination deadline is Jan. 6, 2021. There is a $99 entry free.
