Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Whom should I nominate? You should nominate a woman in business that is an established leader and has a proven track record of accomplishments in business and community service. We’re looking for the woman behind the business, her personal successes and achievements and how she individually inspires others. Our nominees are the best and brightest our community has to offer. Multiple nominations for the same person do not enhance the nominee’s chances of being selected as an honoree.
  • Why should I nominate someone? This is a chance to honor a peer or a mentor who has been influential in their companies, industries and communities.
  • Can I nominate myself? Self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged. The nomination form is looking for detailed answers about a nominee’s career, goals and business/personal growth. Who better to answer these questions then the nominee herself? We also ask for a copy of the nominee’s resume.
  • How are the honorees chosen? Honorees are selected by a panel of independent judges. The judges will select the 25 women based on five categories that include career accomplishments, leadership, personal/business vision, community service and mentoring.
  • What makes for a well-done nomination? Well-done nominations tell a personal story of the nominee’s path to success, obstacles overcome, unique talents, etc. The best nominations are clear, concise and complete.
  • Does the woman have to be local? Yes. The nominee must currently be employed in any of the following counties: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and/ or York.

Other eligibility requirements:

  • Cannot be a member of the judging panel, or a member of any judge’s immediate family.
  • Past Pennsylvania’s Best 50 Women in Business award recipients ARE eligible for this program, past Women of Influence winners are NOT eligible.
  • Nominees may be employed in for-profit businesses or nonprofit organizations EXCEPT 501(c)3 organizations and government entities.
