Nominations are also being accepted for the Group Award, honoring a business owned by a woman or a women's professional or volunteer group; and for the Elizabeth Dole Glass Ceiling Award, recognizing a woman who has overcome significant obstacles in improving her life or the lives of others.
The Clara Barton Spectrum Awards Luncheon, named in honor of the international founder of the Red Cross, will be June 21 at the Hyatt Regency Irvine. Tickets are $50 per person.
