Awards to Texas women to recognize exceptional business leadership in eligible locations. The purpose of the awards program is to honor women business leaders for their accomplishments in leadership, community involvement, company success, and career advancement.

The 2022 Women in Business awards will recognize women in Central Texas who have forged their own path and developed their own leadership principles. These women have something to offer the next generation of women leaders. They have made a difference in their communities, blazed new trails and are leaving a mark on Central Texas business. 

The Women in Business finalists will be selected by a panel of Central Texas industry experts and Women in Business / Profiles in Power alumna. Judges will select one Rising Star, which will honor one woman 30 or under for her achievements thus far and up to five outstanding candidates will be named the 2022 Women in Business.
