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

Nominations to recognize the local business world’s most important women business leaders are open.

This longstanding awards program celebrates its 25th year in honoring the exceptional women who have made a difference in San Diego’s business, cultural and civic scene. Nominees will be judged on their innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishment and community leadership. The nomination deadline is Oct. 29.

The awards program is slated for Dec. 13 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and will recognize finalists and winners.
