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, NH Business Review will present, for the third time, our 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.

Congratulations to the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains for receiving this year’s award, sponsored by Birch Hill.

Awards will be distributed during an evening reception on February 13, hosted by Tiffany Eddy. Recipients will also be featured in an upcoming issue of the NH Business Review.
