The League of Railway Industry Women (LRIW) has extended its nominations deadline to Aug. 11 for the 2017 Outstanding Woman of the Year Award, which is co-sponsored by Progressive Railroading.

For two decades, the LRIW has been recognizing women who have made significant contributions to the rail industry through leadership, dedication and vision. Women working in the North American rail industry are eligible to receive the award.

Nomination criteria and the official nomination form can be downloaded from the LRIW website.

This year's award will be presented at the Railway Interchange 2017 conference being held Sept. 17-20 in Indianapolis.

"We all know a woman who goes the extra mile, helps make strategic decisions that propel the business forward, looks after the company's best interests, motivates and encourages staff, and notably does so much more," said LRIW Awards Chair Sally Boven in a press release.

Last year, the Outstanding Woman of the Year Award was presented to Anamaria Bonilla, assistant chief engineer of track and structures at MTA Metro-North Railroad.
