Outstanding Women in Business

Owb Logo 2022The Outstanding Women in Business Awards celebrate the success and achievements of women across New Hampshire’s diverse business community.

The Outstanding Women in Business Awards celebrate New Hampshire women who have truly excelled, not only in their professional lives but also as leaders and role models in their communities. 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 seventh 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.

Awards will be distributed during an evening reception on February 10, 2022. Recipients will also be featured in an issue of NH Business Review.
