Women Who Mean Business
Inspiring Stories of Leadership from Five Unstoppable Business Women
Biz 417's Women Who Mean Business worked their way to the top of their respective industries in southwest Missouri and are poised for growth. Our fourth annual feature introduces five impressive women unafraid of change or obstacles.
Meet the Women Who Mean Business in Person
Find out what makes the most powerful women in 417-land tick April 11 at Biz 417's B-School Breakfast Series presented by OTC Center for Workforce Development. Networking begins at Andy B's over breakfast, then gain insight on leadership, goal setting, advancing your career and entrepreneurship through a Q&A discussion with our panelists.
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.
