New this year is the Young Professional category. The five award categories are Academia, Business, Government, Non-Profit, and Young Professional. The Giraffe Awards are presented in March during the Chamber’s annual celebration of Women’s History Month. Nomination submission deadline is Tuesday, February 7, 2017.

Would you like to be a Giraffe Sponsor?
Sponsorship of the Giraffe Awards is a great way to demonstrate your support for the Women’s Chamber and its programs that connect women entrepreneurs with peers, promote the participation of women on boards and in C-suites, foster mentoring of junior and mid-level career women, and bring relevant affordable programs and technical assistance to foster opportunities for our area’s growing number of women at work.
Sponsorship is also a great, and cost-effective, way to promote your own business or endeavor. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with prestigious event attendees, Giraffe Award nominees, WCC members and associates. Your sponsorship and/or participation in the EXPO helps bring needed resources to support meaningful programming, business advocacy, and training for women at all stages of their working lives.
We urge you to act today, as sponsorship opportunities are purposely limited to ensure the greatest impact for you and your business. Download the Giraffe Sponsor Form and thank you for your support of the Women’s Chamber of Commerce during Women’s History Month.
