Women In Business Awards - Women of Excellence

Nominations for the inaugural Women of Excellence awards are now open!

The Women of Excellence awards celebrate exceptional Columbia businesswomen who strive to continuously grow in their professional field through continued education and serving in the community. They also seek to further other women within their professional field through both formal and informal mentorships and helping them connect to other women. There are eight categories, seven of which are industry specific and one that is not: education, health care, finance, retail, hospitality, real estate, public service, professional excellence.

Here are a few tips to follow when writing your nomination that will help your person get chosen:

  • The nominee must work in Boone County.
  • Self nominations will not be considered.
  • Include specific numbers and details on the nominee’s achievements and their impact on the community. For example, “She increased sales across the company by 20 percent over two years.”

Nominations are open until December 21, 2018 at 5 p.m.

  • Please tell us in 50+ words why this person is a Woman of Excellence.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
