Here’s your chance to give her her due.

BrandSource’s Women In Business (WIB) organization is looking for nominees for its 2020 Cornerstone Award. The honor is bestowed each year upon a female BrandSource member, supplier or vendor partner who engenders the best qualities of the group.

Qualifying candidates will have demonstrated social responsibility within the community and improved their respective businesses through exemplary initiative, dedication and leadership – all while empowering other women along the way.

BrandSource members must submit their nominations here by Feb. 7. The winner will be selected by WIB and presented with the Cornerstone Award at the The Summit 2020 in March.

WIB was created six years ago to explore the themes of female empowerment, education and inspiration. Through its regular meetings the group addresses such topics as connecting and networking with other female professionals; successfully building leadership teams; earning recognition in a male-dominated industry; bridging the gender gap in one’s professional life; and finding comfort and satisfaction in one’s personal life.

Remember, the cutoff for Cornerstone nominees is Feb. 7 so submit her name now!
