Women Who Mean Business
Meet the 2020 Biz 417 Women Who Mean Business
Each of Biz 417's Women Who Mean Business has earned her spot at the table and continues to prove that dreaming big and taking risks can pay off big time. Our fifth annual feature introduces five impressive women unafraid of change or obstacles.
How it works
We all know one: a powerful, determined businesswoman who, honestly, would be a little intimidating if she weren’t so damn good at her job. That’s the type of woman Biz 417 has shed the spotlight on since our first class of Women Who Mean Business in 2016. Strong candidates are women who are leading the way in their fields, running boardrooms or giving back in big ways.
The formal nomination period opens each September and includes a finalist round. Honorees are profiled in the March/April issue of the following year.
