“The Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame and the She’s on Her Way awards recognize remarkable Delaware women for their contributions to our state,” said Governor Carney. “I encourage everyone to nominate a leader or changemaker in their community. I’d like to thank the Office of Women’s Advancement and Advocacy for their continued efforts to honor women who are making a difference in Delaware.”

Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame 
The Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame was established in 1981 to recognize the achievements of outstanding Delaware women and their contributions to communities across the state. The induction ceremony is the oldest annual celebration of its kind commemorating Delaware women. The award honors Delaware women who have made an important and lasting impact on the lives of Delawareans and have resided in the state for at least 10 years during their lifetime. Nominees both living and deceased are eligible. An induction ceremony for those chosen in 2024 will be held in the fall. 

In 2022, the Office of Women’s Advancement and Advocacy launched a website that features portraits and biographies of all members of the Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame. The Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame Art Exhibit, featuring portraits of each member of the Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame, is currently on display at the Delaware Tech Community College Owens Campus in Georgetown until January 31, 2024. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular business hours.
