About the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame

Michigan Women Forward is proud to be the home of the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame since 2018. The Hall of Fame was established in 1983 by a group of visionary women led by Gladys Beckwith, who recognized the importance of recognizing and celebrating exceptional Michigan women. The Hall of Fame’s mission is to honor and educate the next generation of women leaders to continue blazing trails and achieving greatness. By inducting more women into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame, we highlight their life’s work, their struggles, and their accomplishments. Join us in celebrating the incredible contributions of Michigan women and inspiring future generations of leaders.

Selection Criteria for Inductees

  • Distinctive accomplishments or contributions that have been of an enduring nature and further the social, cultural, economic, health, education, and/or political wellbeing of the community, state, or nation.
  • Service or activity which has significantly advanced the status of women in society.
  • Ways in which the nominee changed the course of history for Michiganders and/or citizens of the world.

Induction into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame is considered as a “Lifetime Achievement Award.” As the name implies, the award is intended to reflect the culmination of a lifetime of dedicated service or accomplishment and not merely recognition of the candidate’s current level of achievement. Inductees include both historical (deceased) and contemporary (living) honorees.
