Nomination forms are distributed and available from the committee and will be available online. The Council holds an awards reception in May, at which time the award recipients and student scholarship recipients are honored by the Council and freeholders as well as family, friends and co-workers. The awards reception is open to the public.
Each year the Council presents awards to women (PDF) who live or work in Burlington County, for accomplishments in several areas.
The awards are intended to honor women who have made a difference within the Burlington County community for significant contributions in their chosen field, as well as those who demonstrated their support for women. These women have acted as mentors, role models, or advocates for other women.
Examples include volunteerism in:
Women’s Lecture Series
This is a four-part series addressing different issues facing women with topics such as stress management, nutrition, and safety, etc. Doctors or health educators from Virtua Hospital are guest speakers.
Women’s Mentoring Event Series
In the fall of 2018, the Council will be launching a new mentoring event series, with the goal of bringing more than 50 established professional women together with women either starting or re-starting their careers.
The purpose of this sub-committee is to address the committee’s involvement with other community projects and/or organizations and help in carrying them out. It also seeks new ways in which the council can achieve its goals and positively impact the women in Burlington County community.
