In 1970, the Distinguished Women Award was established by the Board of Trustees of Northwood University to honor the enormous contributions of women. The award is a recognition of excellence. Its recipients represent the values ​​that Northwood champions for its own students: commitment to free enterprise, partnership between arts and business, and management of global commerce.

The class of 2022 of Distinguished Women will be honored at the 53rd Distinguished Women’s Awards Gala, to be held on Saturday, October 15 at the H Hotel in Midland.
