Outstanding Women in Business

The Outstanding Women in Business Awards celebrate the success and achievements of women across the state’s diverse business community.

The Outstanding Women in Business Awards celebrate women who have truly excelled, not only in their professional lives, but as leaders and role models. While many of these women come from different industries and walks of life, they share several traits — a strong sense of self, a success-driven work ethic and the extraordinary accomplishments to show for it. Their commitment, vision and talents make them true leaders in their chosen fields.

In addition to this year's six Outstanding Women in Business, NH Business Review awarded our first-ever Advocate for Women’s Empowerment Award (AWE Award). The AWE Award honors an individual or organization that has made a lasting impact on empowering women and girls in the Granite State. The award serves to recognize those who have made additional efforts to ensure future generations of women succeed. In its inaugural year, the award will aptly be presented to Girls Inc. of New Hampshire by our sponsor, RiverWoods.
