With the publication today of Rising Stars, it’s time to move to Women Who Mean Business, the Business Press’ signature program honoring women who have scaled the heights in business.
While there is no age requirement here – after all, who’d ask a woman of accomplishment to divulge that kind of information – the application remains that pesky blank sheet of paper.
Tell us what sets this woman apart. List the business, industry and community accomplishments. List all those title and awards. It all helps the judges do their work.
Like Rising Stars, geography matters. Although the program is open to anyone who works in Clark County, preference will be given to those who work in the Las Vegas metro market, which includes North Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City.
And like Rising Stars, entrepreneurship and innovation are valued. And so is community service. Tell us about your extra-curricular activities as well as your accomplishments at work.
We have no set number of honorees. And yes, you can nominate yourself.
The window is open for nominations via email to nominations@BusinessPress.Vegas. Make sure you include contact information for both the nominee and the nominator.
Think of submitting a nomination as a bit like applying for a job. Write a note telling the judges why you think this person is worthy of being a Women Who Means Business honoree. Feel free to include a resume but please don’t send just the resume. What’s in the file on closing day — Friday, April 3 — is what the judges will use in selecting the next group of Women Who Mean Business.
Look for announcements in the coming weeks on the location of the not-to-be-missed awards celebration. Each winner will receive two free tickets. There is a charge for additional tickets.
