MORE WOMEN WHO MEAN BUSINESS WINNERS

How it works

LEARN MORE

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.
