The 2016 Successful Business Women Awards will be held on September 21st, in Syracuse, New York. The ceremony event honors 25 women across the business spectrum, with honorees ranging from social services to mentorship, media services, higher education, and many more.
Members of the community first nominated all award recipients. After receiving over 40 nominations, a judging panel reviewed all the candidates, taking into consideration mentorship practices, community engagement and leadership qualities, years in service, and years in business.
