CEO Connection® is accepting nominations for the 2018 Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market List. This list recognizes top female executives who are influencing change, innovation, and standards for excellence. They are influencers, innovators, and pioneers driven to succeed and challenging others to do the same. The deadline to submit a nomination is Wednesday, February 28, 2018. More information, including the nomination form, is available at www.midmarketconvention.com/influential-women/.
This list is designed to bring awareness to an underrepresented group within the mid-market and highlight the top 25 Most Influential Women today. Updated annually, the Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market list ranks honorees based on four metrics: annual revenue, number of employees, community involvement, and first impression on social media.
Nominations are accepted from the community at large. Self-nominations are also welcome. Qualified nominees are presented to a selection committee composed of business leaders, academia, and the media, who will review nominees based on their influence within their industry and beyond.
Comprised of nearly 20,000 publicly and privately held companies with annual revenues between $100 million and $3 billion, the mid-market represents an integral segment of the U.S. economy, employing more than 30 million people and generating approximately $10 trillion of the $30 trillion of annual gross receipts.
Members of the 2018 Most Influential Women of the Mid-Market will be announced this spring and recognized at the annual CEO Connection® Mid-Market Convention held in conjunction with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania Sept. 23-25.
