The two-day Colorado Women's Day conference, with the theme "Women Take the Reins," is part of the global celebration of International Women's Day held every year on March 8. This year's event will benefit Rotary International's WASH District 5450 which makes significant investments in water infrastructure for in-need communities around the world. For the eight awards, all nomination forms, along with other information about the event, can be found at Women are also encouraged to nominate themselves. While women who have been previously recognized with other awards are encouraged to apply, Colorado Women's Day is particularly seeking out those women who have made impactful contributions in their field or to the community and have gone unrecognized for their work in the past.

Nominations for all the awards can come from any member of the public. Any woman residing anywhere within the state of Colorado for at least the last six months can be nominated, and no membership in any club or organization is required. All finalists, along with their organization or business, will be announced a month in advance of the Colorado Women's Day conference Thursday and Friday, March 10 and 11, 2022 at the Marriott Hotel Denver West.
