The WINGS Women of Discovery Awards were established in 2003 to recognize extraordinary women making significant contributions to world knowledge and science through exploration.

On October 12, 2023, we hosted our 2023 Women of Discovery Awards Gala. It was truly an unforgettable evening honoring five new Women of Discovery, their innovative ideas and bold discoveries, and their unceasing quest to build a better world for us all.
