Independent Women’s Forum 
Annual Awards Gala

6 PM Reception | 7 PM Dinner Program

Washington, DC — Independent Women’s Forum will host its 2018 Annual Awards Gala on Wednesday, November 14 at DAR Constitution Hall, in Washington, D.C. The program will feature special guests the Honorable Nikki Haley, executive producer and TV host Mike Rowe, and Fox News Channel “Outnumbered Overtime” host Harris Faulkner. 

The gala — known for being fun, elegant, and inspiring — brings together influential leaders from all avenues, and recognizes and celebrates champions of women who are dedicated defenders of democracy, liberty, and free markets.

“Independent Women’s Forum's Annual Awards Gala shows how incomplete the media's stereotype of male-dominated conservatism is,” said Carrie Lukas, president of Independent Women’s Forum. “This year, IWF will have an expected 600 guests, many of them leading women working to advance ideals like economic liberty and personal freedom.  We will all be celebrating not only the accomplishments of our honorees and of IWF, but of America and American women in particular.”

Media should email Caroline Phelps ([email protected]) to request access to the event. And visit to learn more about the 2018 Annual Awards Gala.
