Women of Professional Excellence Award

Recipients of the Woman of Professional Excellence Award are selected by their employers for their professional accomplishments, dedication to the organization and commitment to the community.

Our 2016 honorees were featured in the 2016 edition of ACHIEVE Magazine. To read about each Woman of Professional Excellence, as well as about our 2016 Women if Achievement, click here to view ACHIEVE Magazine.

All Women of Professional Excellence complete a brief information form (see link below) and respond to a number of questions regarding their personal and career goals. The answers to these questions were used as the content for the biographies in ACHIEVE Magazine.
