Striking The Right Balance
The 2017 She Runs It Working Mothers of the Year are successes at work, at home, and in their communities.
Being a working parent means you have two demanding jobs. The 26 winners of the She Runs It 2017 Working Mothers of the Year Awards know what it means to be caught in the crossfire between the office and home. But they also know what it takes to get it all done. There’s sacrifice, commitment, accomplishment and rewards.
Each year, She Runs It (formerly AWNY) honors women who have achieved outstanding business results while also serving as strong role models or mentors at work, at home and within their communities. This year’s winners are being celebrated on February 28 at a luncheon at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.
