A platform to honor hardworking, self-sacrificing, amazing women.
There are many wonderful women within our communities that give endlessly and selflessly of themselves daily. They run businesses, lead organizations, manage households, support spouses, raise children, and more! And they get it all done without complaint and radiate positivity wherever they go. Those SHEROES work tirelessly, typically behind the scenes, and because we know they exist, we want to say thank you.
Know a great woman that is under the radar but so deserving of recognition? Nominate her to be an honoree today.
