The annual Awards Luncheon helps support the grant-making for local women-focused nonprofits and general operations for the foundation. Each year the Board of Directors identifies individuals who are leading the way in changing the status of Women in Arizona or around the world. The Sandra Day O’Connor Lifetime Achievement, Voice of Women and Marilyn R. Seymann Awards, are presented independently to three worthy individuals who exemplify that change. 

This year's Sandra Day O'Connor Lifetime Achievement Award Honoree is two-time Golden Globe nominated actress, humanitarian and author Ashley Judd. Ms. Judd is known for her roles in highly successful movies such as Kiss the Girls, Eye of the Beholder, Someone Like You, and Double Jeopardy. And most notably, Arizona Foundation for Women is recognizing Ms. Judd for her philanthropic and activist work around women’s health, rights and equality, and helping those living with AIDS around the world.
