The HBA ACE Awards




Competitive Edge.

The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association’s (HBA) prestigious ACE awards program recognizes exemplary leadership initiatives that advance and enhance the careers of women.

Position your company alongside an elite group of progressive organizations. 

Join others who have committed to realizing the full potential of their female talent by fostering programs that deliver impactful and measurable results. 

New this year:

With many companies launching programs for women of color, the HBA would like to locate and showcase these programs to share best practices. We encourage you to submit a nomination if your company has established a specific initiative. There is no fee.

The 2019 ACE awards will be presented at the 2019 HBA Annual Conference in San Diego, California, on 12 November. Program representatives from winning companies are expected at the awards luncheon. Conference attendance is not required.

The submission process has been moved online making it simpler to apply. 

Award Fees:
The award submission fee is $500 USD for HBA corporate partners and $1,000 for non-corporate partners. There is no fee for companies submitting their Women of Color (WOC) initiatives.

Submissions will be accepted until 15 July, 2019
