Our inaugural Women in Business Top CEOs list recognizes our region’s female CEOs and presidents, but not just for their business savvy and ability to climb the corporate ladder. These women have broken the glass ceiling. They’ve climbed that corporate ladder, stepping over many men to do so, and done it all while facing sexism in the workplace, pay gaps and society’s idea that women “can’t have it all.” They’ve raised families while growing a business, many times in male-dominated fields. They’ve developed personally as well as professionally. They’ve come out on top and they do, indeed, “have it all.” These are local women our daughters can look up to, our young female professionals can aspire to mimic and our female- driven publications should celebrate!

With this list, Women in Business hopes you’re motivated by the proof of what women can do, will do and are doing, right in our very own cities. If they can do it, you can do it.

Read their stories and get inspired.
