About the National Women’s Hall of Fame Inductee Selection Process 

The 2023 Inductees were nominated by the public and judged by an independent National Panel of Judges, an interdisciplinary team of experts across the nominees’ fields. An independent Inductee Selection Committee reviews finalists and makes the final recommendations for Inductees.  Honorees are recognized for their invaluable contributions to American society in the areas of the arts, athletics, business, education, government, humanities, philanthropy, and science.
