I’m very happy to share some exciting news with the WomenOnBusiness.com readers. WomenOnBusiness.com was named Best Blog in the 8th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business during an awards ceremony held in New York City on November 11, 2011.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business recognize and honor women around the world in executive and entrepreneurial roles as well as the companies they lead. The Stevie Awards have been called the world’s premier business awards and referred to as the “Oscar Awards for business” by the New York Post. The 24 karat gold and crystal statues awarded to winners are crafted by the same company that makes the iconic Academy Award statues.
The 2011 Stevie Awards ceremony was attended by 300 finalists chosen from over 1,300 applications and benfitted Camfed (camfed.org), which fights poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa by educating girls and empowering women to become leaders of change.
