Rest Up Awards
In 2023, Women’s Foundation of Minnesota (WFM) announced the recipients of the Rest Up Awards to cultivate rest and well-being with women leaders across the state. The award is a keystone celebration of our four decades of advancing gender and racial justice and transformation with women, girls, and gender-expansive people across the state.
As core caretakers of their families and communities, women and gender-expansive people (specifically those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color) have been leading organizations and movements that foster a culture of collective care. While we continue to invest in gender and racial justice efforts, it’s clear we also need to support the ability for community leaders to rest so they can show up and do their best work.
Leadership & Community Power
Growing a state where all women, girls, and gender-expansive people are valued as solution-builders and leaders within their communities strengthens the collective power of communities and movements for gender and racial justice.

To value the healthy and whole lives of women, girls, and gender-expansive people, access to healthcare must be readily available and without restrictions to support the mind, body, and spirit.
