Heroines of Washington is one of Washington, D.C.’s most unique events, recognizing and honoring women in the D.C. Metro Area for their dedication to community service. Formerly Heroines in Technology, the March of Dimes has expanded these awards to honor women in various industries, including healthcare, real estate and the public sector among others.
The finalists were chosen from a select group of women for giving back to their community through tremendous feats of volunteerism that go above and beyond their employment requirements. This year’s finalists work with homeless shelters and veterans, provide lifesaving equipment and education to local hospitals, support STEM programs, and advocate for diversity inclusion. Their tireless dedication to these causes solidified their placement as finalists.
