Woman of The Metro North
There are many women in the Metro North region who are making a difference in their workplaces and communities every day. They are business leaders, mentors and community supporters. We're looking for women from every industry and profession — women who have made a difference in their communities, blazed a trail for the rest of us and are leaving a mark on the community. Nominations will be judged on three criteria: professional accomplishments, community leadership, as well as awards and milestones. Each of these should be addressed in the nomination.
