Women’s Initiative seeks nominees for business award
The Alameda County board of Women’s Initiative for Self Employment is seeking nominees for its Woman Business Owner of the Year award.
The organization, which has provided comprehensive business training, loans and ongoing support to low income women who want to start and build sustainable, profitable businesses since 1988, has partnered with the San Francisco Business Times to recognize women-owned businesses throughout the county (they’ll recognize one business in each city, including Alameda).
They’re looking for business owners who have been successful despite the barriers women business owners face, who exemplify how business ownership and leadership are beneficial for women, who have a positive impact on the community and who advance their field through innovation.
Applications are due in by August 28, and winners will be selected on September 3. To submit a nomination, click here. Winners will be recognized in various media and events through October.
