This year’s request for nominations was structured like the 2020 Report in that we continued to expand the scope of women recognized in the report, who make leadership contributions throughout the ECP, retail, supplier, lab, managed care and association landscapes.

Readers were asked to make up to three nominations per the following categories: Above and Beyond, Executive Suite, Rising Stars, Mentors and Innovators.

Vision Monday received over 300 nominations from its readers for the 2021 MIW Report. Vision Monday's editors reviewed all of the submissions and selected the final 49 for the honors this year.
