You have until June 1 to submit your nominations for the 2011 Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association ACE Awards program, which honors corporate internal leadership initiatives that support women in the healthcare sector.

Open to companies of all types and sizes, the winner is selected by a panel of leading industry executives, based on five criteria: business performance, stewardship, execution, sustainability and measurable results.

The winning company will be endorsed by the HBA, and recognized by industry experts, peer companies and key stakeholders, as a premier provider of breakthrough programming.

Last year’s ACE Award winner was Sanofi-Aventis US for its WISE program (which stands for Women Inspiring Sanofi-Aventis Excellence). With a membership of more than 1,000, this internal women’s network fosters the personal and professional leadership development of women working for the company.
