• Women in Public Service Annual Awards

    As part of the launch of the Women in Public Service (WIPS) Conference in 2012, Hamline committed to bringing together women from across the public sector to share their experiences and insights and support and develop one another’s strengths as they lead and realize their full potential in public service. As part of this commitment, Hamline also recognizes both those who have blazed the trail in public service and those who are up-and-coming leaders with its annual awards.

    WIPS Lifetime Achievement Awards

    This annual award is designed to recognize women who have made a lifetime commitment to serving the public good.

    Past award recipients include:

    WIPS Rising Star Awards

    Focusing on up-and-coming leaders, this award is designed to recognize women in public service with 10 or fewer years of service who are already making their mark in working toward the public good. Winners of the award are eligible for a $2,400 scholarship to pursue an advanced degree from the Hamline School of Business.

    Past recipients include:
