Annually since 1994, the Accolades Business Leader of the Year Awards has celebrated and highlighted the accomplishments of remarkable women in the Southern Colorado business community. During this incredible year of change and challenge, our traditional award criteria seemed to fall short of capturing the magnitude of resilience, innovation and cooperation happening in our membership and community. These unprecedented times have inspired a re-envisioning of our Annual Accolades Awards event for 2020.
Accolade derives from the French verb accoler, meaning “to embrace.” This year’s event will be an embracing of you: our members and our community. We are celebrating the embracing of change and learning to partner with it.
Join us for a fun, inspiring, educational and heartfelt online event you won’t want to miss! All attendees will receive a virtual swag bag, more than worth the price of admission. Registration event proceeds will support grants and programming for women-owned businesses. Our robust silent auction will remain part of the event through a lively, interactive online experience. The auction is our primary fundraiser to provide college scholarships to support women in need.
We will celebrate and embrace our collective accomplishments and will embrace the future – TOGETHER.
