Call for Entries: 2018 Working Mothers of the Year AND Best Companies for Working Mothers
By She Runs It
It’s time for our annual salute to the women who raise businesses while also raising children. The She Runs It Working Mothers of the Year Awards honor those outstanding, multitasking moms who work in the marketing and media industry, serve as strong role models and mentors to others, and who inspire their co-workers, families and communities through their talent and tenacity. This year we are also incorporating a new category: Best Companies for Working Mothers, an annual recognition of the organizations who help mothers succeed at work and at home with a new category.
