Each year, the San Diego Business Journal recognizes women business leaders who are making a difference in their workplaces and communities every day. They are business leaders, mentors and community supporters.

The 2017 Business Women of the Year Awards (formerly Women Who Mean Business) program celebrates its 24th year in honoring the exceptional women who have made a difference in San Diego’s business, cultural and civic scene. Nominations will be judged on their innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishment and community leadership.

The awards program is slated for Nov. 15 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and will recognize finalists and winners in one of the biggest awards program of the year honoring the region’s most successful, dynamic women.
