There is now less than three weeks remaining in the 2021 entry period.

Nominations are being sought in three categories: Rising Stars, Veteran VIPs and the Hall of Honor. Each year the McKnight’s Women of Distinction program recognizes some of the top women leaders in long-term and senior care. Winners, who must be providers or closely affiliated with their cause, are carefully selected by a national independent panel of key stakeholders.

2021 honorees will join a distinguished club of past winners, which includes some of the professions top CEOs, as well as some of its brightest up-and-comers, from companies large and small. With the addition of the Veteran VIP category this year, there is a new outstanding forum to showcase longtime top performers in the field.

Anyone can put forth a nomination. Just complete the basic entry requirements found here. Submitters are encouraged to be as specific and expansive as possible when describing a nominee’s attributes.
