Event: 2020 Working Mothers of the Year Awards

« All Events

  • This event has passed.

The She Runs It Working Mothers of the Year Awards honor those outstanding, multitasking moms who work in marketing, media & tech. They serve as strong role models and mentors to others, and inspire their coworkers, families and communities with their talent and tenacity.

We expand this award to also look at the companies who employ them… recognizing that many women who succeed often benefit from the support, resources and empowerment they get from the companies they work for. The Outstanding Company for Working Mothers Award is designed to spotlight those companies in marketing, media and tech that pave the way for working mothers (and all women) to lead at every level.

Join She Runs It to celebrate exceptional working mothers in the industry on February 27th.
