The Ruby Award honors a woman who, while volunteering or working for a nonprofit organization that provides services to women and/or girls, makes an extraordinary difference in improving their lives. Not only does her work make a significant impact, but it also inspires and encourages other women. The monetary portion of the award is given in her honor to the nonprofit organization she represents.
Women may nominate themselves or another woman for this honor. Soroptimist members are not eligible to receive this award.
