The program will recognize female leaders who are at the top of their careers and who achieve excellence professionally, in the community and through mentoring. Award winners will be announced in March 2018 and recognized at an awards celebration in April 2018.

“The Rochester Business Journal is committed to recognizing professional excellence and celebrating success,” Fischer-Huettner said. “We are looking for women who truly inspire others around them — through their actions, their words and their deeds — to be the best!”
