The award recognizes a female staff or faculty member of the University of Utah who has selflessly given time and energy to improve the educational and/or working environment for women at the U, and best represents the ideals and actions of Linda K. Amos. It is presented annually in March during Women's Week.
The annual networking event and presentation of interest to women commemorates the achievements of Edie Kochenour.
