Worcester Business Journal - October 21, 2016 02:15 PM
A record 47 women were nominated and considered to be the six honorees for this year's Outstanding Women in Business. The vote was very close, too, as 12 different women were within one point from the combined judges' scores of being in one of those select six positions.
Of course, having a large number of nominations and a strong candidate pool means Worcester Business Journal now has one of its strongest Outstanding Women in Business classes in the award's history. The winners were selected on their career achievements, ability to transcend both male- and female-dominated professions, their contributions to the Central Massachusetts community, and their mentorship of young professionals in the region. It was a very close call, but all of this year's winners represent the best of what professionals in the region can be.
