WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) announced its first wave of 2022 Annual Awards Gala honorees. Kimberley Strassel, editorial board member at The Wall Street Journal, will receive IWF’s Barbara K. Olson Woman of Valor award and Diana Davis Spencer, executive chairwoman of the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation, will receive the inaugural Lifetime Achievement award.
IWF’s 2022 Annual Awards Gala is as part of its 30th anniversary celebration. Since its founding in 1992, IWF has emerged as the nation’s top women’s organization dedicated to developing and advancing policies that aren’t just well intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities.
This year’s event marks IWF’s 17th Annual Awards Gala. The event will take place on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
Amber Schwartz, executive vice president of Independent Women’s Forum, said “As Independent Women’s Forum celebrates its 30th anniversary, we are thrilled to honor two incredibly influential women. Kimberley Strassel fearlessly works to expose corruption and hold the political class accountable through her Potomac Watch column. She’s an inspiration to women everywhere, always conducting herself with professionalism and cunning wit. Diana Davis Spencer has spent her entire life using her talent and resources to improve not just her local community but the entire country. Her philanthropic giving has been instrumental in shaping public policy and enabling more people to pursue their own visions of happiness. She is a true hero, and IWF looks forward to celebrating her amazing achievements.
