The IBA Woman of the Year Award celebrates a woman in banking who excels at her profession, is active in the community and supports other females to reach their full potential - whether in banking or other fields. This is a bank-wide opportunity, with emphasis on the ability to lift other women to help them succeed.

Nominate yourself or another woman in banking by completing the form below; optional supporting documentation may be emailed to Laurie Rees at Nominations must be received by Sept. 27, 2019.


1. Nominee’s name, bank, title, and number of years of banking service;

2. A list of community organizations supported by the nominee, including type of service rendered and length of time of service;

3. Description of how the nominee goes above and beyond in support of lifting other females to their full potential – e.g. through mentoring, peer-to-peer exchange, volunteerism with girl-focused youth groups, or other means of championing for women.

Judging will be conducted by an independent panel of professionals unaffiliated with the IBA. We look forward to showcasing the 2019 IBA Woman of the Year at this year’s Banking on Women conference!
