Our 3rd Annual Women in Business Awards

Take a look at some of the most successful companies around the County, and you’ll find that behind their success are some of the most accomplished women. In the following pages, you’ll meet 16 women with outstanding drive, talent, and  vision—women who’ve helped create a thriving business community here in Westchester. It’s a diverse group, encompassing four separate categories: entrepreneurs, for those who’ve broken out on their own and established their own businesses; executives, for those who’ve risen through the ranks and broken the proverbial glass ceiling of some of the most well-known companies around; nonprofit, for those who helm some of the County’s most successful nonprofit organizations; and government, for those who continue to help shape the public sector.
