“Stevie” Says It All | NAWBO
 

It’s one thing to be proud of your organization and its work or share with the world all the positive contributions it makes. It’s quite another, though, to have a outside organization recognize it for its excellence—which is what happened when NAWBO National’s CEO Jen Earle and I attended the 2018 Stevie® Awards for Women in Business gala dinner in New York City last month with 500 other businesswomen and their guests from the U.S., as well as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Vietnam. In fact, the presentations were broadcast live worldwide.

We were so thrilled and deeply honored to accept the top award—the Gold Stevie Award—on behalf of NAWBO National as Organization of the Year (Government or Non-Profit with 10 or Less Employees). People don’t often think about what it takes to run an organization like ours with 50-plus chapters and thousands of members nationwide—and to do it all with vision, values, purpose, class, intelligence, accountability and so much more. It made me so proud to hold that gold award in my hands just knowing what goes on behind the scenes every day to make NAWBO so amazing for our chapters, members, sponsors and partners.

Other winners in our same category included:

Silver Stevie Winners
Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers, Kenmore East, Queensland, Australia
Pipeline Entrepreneurs, Kansas City, KS USA
Tavuun Welfare Association, Karachi, Pakistan

Bronze Stevie Winners
All Wheels Up Inc, Frisco, TX USA
The Art of Medicine Foundation, Orlando, FL USA
FPI Fair Pay Innovation Lab, Berlin, Germany
Health4TheWorld, Palo Alto, CA USA

More than 1,500 nominations from organizations and individuals in 33 nations were submitted to the awards this year for consideration. Click here to view all the winners.

 

 

In this issue of NAWBO ONE, we look back at other great moments for our organization this year—from Advocacy Day and an H.R. 5050 anniversary to hosting the FCEM World Committee Meeting in New York City and much, much more. We also speak with our chapter leaders about how NAWBO made a difference for them both personally and professionally this year.

Enjoy this last issue of the year, and on behalf of the entire NAWBO National board and staff, please accept our heartfelt wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season and New Year. May 2019 be one of our best years yet in our lives and our businesses.

—Molly Gimmel, 2018-2019 NAWBO National Board Chair
