Celebrating Exceptional Leadership

HBA’s Woman of the Year award honors an exceptional leader whose work has made a significant impact in the healthcare industry. 

These individuals are innovators who have advanced global leadership change or scientific achievement. They are exceptional mentors in the workplace and beyond — setting new benchmarks and building a supportive community for their peers and women across the globe.

A Role Model for Our Industry

Each year, the Woman of the Year is recognized at our annual event in New York City (and virtually) that brings together influential executives, sponsors, and media to celebrate on a global stage. The Woman of the Year engages with the HBA community at international and local events throughout the year, sharing her journey and continuing to inspire and support women in healthcare

The nomination period for the 2025 HBA Woman of the Year will open in August. Stay tuned! 

  • Submissions are reviewed by an awards selection committee of seasoned industry executives dedicated to HBA’s mission.
  • Each committee member reviews the submissions and independently ranks candidates against defined criteria.
  • The judging committee considers the summarized ratings, debates the merits of each submission, and selects the Woman of the Year.

The HBA congratulates all previous Women of the Year.
