The women profiled in this special supplement of the Rochester Business Journal represent nearly every sector of our community, including corporate, entrepreneurial, education, legal, manufacturing, health care, and not-for-profit organizations. Each finalist has produced exceptional results for her organization, has made significant contributions as a leader in our community, and has assisted in the personal and professional development of other women.
The Athena Award program is a tribute to all who participate, including our outstanding finalists and their nominators. We thank the community for its continued support and participation.
As you read and learn more about the Athena Award finalists, we know you will agree that they are outstanding examples of achievement and leadership. We invite you to join us for our 28th annual Athena Award luncheon at noon on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, at the Riverside Convention Center, as we honor and celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s finalists and announce the 2014 Athena Award recipient.
