2019 Influential Women in Business Awards: Nominations Open

2019 Influential Women in Business Awards: Nominations Open

It’s that time of year again! Business in Vancouver is seeking nominations for B.C.'s outstanding business women in private or public sector companies. 

Our intention is to give worthy individuals the recognition they deserve as well as to use their example to inspire other Influential Women in Business to achieve similar success. Five winners and one Lifetime Achievement Award winner will be profiled in a February issue of Women in Business Magazine and honoured at a special awards luncheon in early March 2019. Each winner will share their leadership lessons to an audience of Vancouver’s business community.

Honourees are influential leaders in their industry and the business community at large, committing time and resources to mentor other women in business and contribute their expertise on corporate and not for profit boards. They are chosen based on the criteria of professional accomplishments, influence, and business community involvement. For more information about the awards process, visit www.biv.com/iwib

NEW THIS YEAR: THE MICHELLE POCKEY LEADERSHIP AWARD

As a prominent lawyer and community activist, Michelle Pockey dedicated herself to making a positive difference in the world – from energy, mining, environmental and Indigenous issues to increasing the economic success and impact of women. Michelle worked tirelessly for 20 years advancing women in business, law, First Nations and non-traditional sectors. She was an inspiration to others every day of her life until her passing from cancer in June 2016.

To help support Michelle’s legacy and advance other women along their leadership journeys, Business in Vancouver and Minerva BC have partnered to recognize this exceptional female leader through the creation of the Michelle Pockey Leadership Award. This Award will give first priority to an Indigenous woman and single parents, and second priority to women pursuing law, justice, Indigenous or environmental studies. The Award is intended to support the successful nominee's tuition, housing or childcare in the pursuit of post-secondary education or entrepreneurship. 

The Award and a donation cheque will be presented at Business in Vancouver's Influential Women in Business Awards in March 2019. For more information about the awards process, visit www.biv.com/leadership-award.
