Women’s Week

March 7-11

Women’s Week presented by Henry Ford Allegiance Health is a weeklong celebration of the women in our community, highlighting some of the leaders that are trailblazing paths in industries such as healthcare, education, military service, manufacturing, technology, and entrepreneurship.

This event is sponsored by Henry Ford Allegiance Health and National Grid Renewables. It includes daily virtual learning opportunities via zoom, morning videos by top community leaders, and a “Wall of Fame” to showcase women who deserve attention for the great work they do in our community every day.
