This award honors “outstanding leaders and highlights high-ranking female executives in various industries. They have reached the top of their profession and are respected and successful leaders within their organization. They drive change, innovate and inspire others to succeed while contributing to business growth and the strategic direction of the organization.”

The National Women’s Conference is an annual event that “focuses on professional development, community, networking, entrepreneurship, and women’s health.”

The Ohio Diversity Council is a group of four regional groups committed to promoting diversity in the workplace, developing leaders of diversity, and developing programs for youth that support diversity education and awareness.
