VGM kicks off nominations for HME Woman of the Year

Friday, June 16, 2017

WATERLOO, Iowa – VGM is now accepting nominations for the 2017 HME Woman of the Year Award. The announcement was made during the “Women and Wine” event at VGM’s Heartland Conference last week. The event included a session on how to apply Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” concepts and a moderated discussion on work-life balance. Also at the event, a video was shown promoting the award. Last year’s winner was Dr. Kirsten Davin, who has used the award as a platform to network with other women in the industry and share successes and obstacles that impact their businesses. Davin and the other finalists for last year’s award are not eligible for this year’s award, but they encourage their peers to nominate a deserving woman who has impacted the industry. Women are also encouraged to nominate themselves. “I would encourage everyone to take a minute to really think about what they do, what they’ve done, and who they’ve touched,” Davin said. “By really sitting down and reviewing your career, we often find out that we have a greater impact than we think we do.” Nominations are due Aug. 14.
