Nomination opens for DSN’s Top Women in Health, Wellness and Beauty 2023

Recipients will be recognized at a November 2023 event with an updated format and more networking opportunities.

The nomination window for the 2023 Drug Store News Top Women in Health, Wellness and Beauty Industry Awards is officially open.

Now in its fifth year, Top Women is a program that recognizes women's integral role in retail pharmacy. As part of the program, all recipients will be recognized in the November issue of Drug Store News

Drug Store News launched Top Women five years ago as a way to recognize and celebrate the contributions of women in retail pharmacy and as a vehicle to help identify emerging leaders that will be the next wave in the industry.

The program is open to suppliers and retailers who are invited to nominate themselves or others in three categories:

  • Rising Stars: Recognizes a woman who is considered an up-and-coming leader in her profession. The Rising Star is a woman to watch who has had significant accomplishments and/or achieved notable success;
  • Business Excellence: Recognizes a woman who has demonstrated achievement, growth and success. She understands the importance of innovative ideas, education, decision-making, mentoring and community service; and
  • Commitment to Care: Recognizes a woman in pharmacy who leads in her community. She is engaged in the community through volunteer work, contributes to charitable organizations and has an overall commitment to patient care and her organization.

Nominators are encouraged to share specific initiatives, achievements and examples of leadership in order to present a full picture of a candidate and demonstrate what makes her a Top Woman in Health, Wellness and Beauty. The winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Chicago (watch a highlight video of the 2023 event), in a cover story in the November issue of Drug Store News and in an interactive story on
