2017 Breaking the Glass Ceiling Awards

To be presented on Sunday, March 26, 2017

The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is seeking nominations for the 21st Annual Breaking the Glass Ceiling Awards to be presented on Sunday, March 26, 2017 in Miami Beach. From the submissions, the Breaking the Glass Ceiling Committee will select four women from around the state to receive the annual award.

The award was established in 1995 by the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU (JMOF-FIU) to honor Florida Jewish professional women who have become successful pioneers in fields generally dominated by men. While this is not an award for community service, the honorees must have demonstrated activities in the Jewish and civic community and served as role models or mentors. More than 85 women have received this prestigious award to date including women in medicine, banking, accounting, academia, politics, law, aviation, sports, journalism, arts, entertainment and more.

If you know a woman who qualifies for this award, please fill out the nomination form and return it to JMOF-FIU by Friday, January 20, 2017 at 5:00 pm. You may submit more than one nominee. Nomination is an honor, but not a guarantee of final selection. In order to receive the award, recipients must be able to take part in the Glass Ceiling Ceremony at JMOF-FIU on Sunday, March 26, 2017. To obtain a nomination form, send an email to membership@jewishmuseum.com or click here for Nomination Form or call 786-972-3164.
