Since 2000, the Women Who Make a Difference program has honored those who are impacting our CU Boulder community. Each fall, nominations are accepted from the campus community to honor those who identify as women and awards are presented at a celebration for the nominees and their nominators. 

Each October, the center invites CU Boulder students, faculty and staff to nominate marvelous women in our community including advocates, colleagues, friends, grandmothers, mothers, storytellers or any woman who has impacted your life in a positive way. While nominators must be affiliated with CU Boulder, nominees can be members of the wider community. Because the goal of this award is to recognize more women for all their contributions to our campus, the program honors all women who are nominated.

The awards reception for 2023 took place Tuesday, Dec. 12.
