Women in Leadership / Legal Status
The Topical Committee on Women in Leadership/Legal Status focuses on legal issues and legal standing of women. One of the major events this committee is charged with is the planning of the Kate Barnard Luncheon and Award Ceremony. Adopting a proposal from Commissioner Linda Edmondson, the OCSW created the Kate Barnard Award in 1998 to honor outstanding women in public service in Oklahoma. Nominees are from the ranks of elected or appointed salaried public officials in Oklahoma.
Previous recipients of the Kate Barnard Award include U.S. Federal Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange, State Senator Penny Williams, State Senator Angela Monson, Congresswoman Mary Fallin, Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins, Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland, and most recently, Judge April Sellers White.
