The Alaska Women's Hall of Fame (AWHF) recognizes women natives or residents of the U.S. state of Alaska for their significant achievements or statewide contributions. It was conceived by the Alaska Women's Network's (AWN) Board of Directors as a part of the state's 50th anniversary of Alaska's statehood. Fifty women were inducted into the AWHF on March 6, 2009. As of the 2012 inductions, ninety-four women and one organization, the Sisters of Providence,[1] have been honored.[2] The founding members and partners of the AWHF are the Zonta Club of Anchorage, the YWCA, Alaska Women for Political Action, the Anchorage Women's Commission, the University of Alaska Anchorage, Alaska Women's Network and the ATHENA Society.[3]
