Currently, 89 women have been inducted.

A coalition serves as the participating sponsors for the Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame, including the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State; the Arizona Historical Society; the Sharlot Hall Museum and the Arizona Humanities. The induction is followed by a reception with light refreshments. Guests are able to mingle with associates and family members of the inducted women as well as view the custom-made memorial quilts created by the Arizona Quilters Guild and the Phoenix Quilters Association.
