    On October 3rd, 2024, Women & Hi Tech will host our signature biennial event, the Leading Light Awards (LLAs). Add this event to your calendar by clicking "Add to my calendar" above and to the right!

    This prestigious event recognizes women of achievement in STEM who have made great innovations in their industries, and have shown qualities of expertise, professionalism, leadership, service, courage, and tenacity as they built their careers. Women receive awards for excellence as mentors, risk takers, and more. We also award scholarships during this ceremony, as do our sponsors. We would be delighted to have you and your organization join us for this remarkable evening at the Indiana Roof Ballroom!

    The theme of this year’s event will be focused around Women & Hi Tech’s 25th Anniversary celebration! Our silver jubilee will recognize our founders who planted a seed in Indianapolis a quarter of a century ago to elevate women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)!

    Scholarship applications and award nominations for this event are open NOW through July 1! Please click here for more information.

    We invite organizations throughout Indiana to become a sponsor for the 2024 Leading Light Awards. There are several Leading Light Awards (LLA) sponsorship opportunities. This includes supporting a portion of the LLA event such as a Signature, Media, Table, Bar, Treats, and In-Kind Sponsorships. Additionally, there are opportunities to sponsor a scholarship or a grant for professional development.

    The 2024 Leading Light Awards, with an expected attendance of around 700 guests, is an outstanding opportunity for your organization to gain, maintain, and/or enhance brand recognition as an Indiana STEM trailblazer, to meet and/or connect with other leading STEM organizations, companies, and professional individuals in Indiana, and to celebrate and inspire your employees, clients, and customers.

    For a list of Women & Hi Tech corporate sponsors and/or past Leading Light Awards sponsors, please visit: https://www.womenandhitech.org/sponsors.
