As 2013 winds down, the Idaho Business Review is looking forward to what is coming in the new year.

For the ninth year, IBR will salute 50 successful women in business across public, private and charitable sectors. A panel consisting of past honorees and Idaho women business leaders selected the 50 from more than 150 nominees. The women of the year were chosen for their leadership skills, achievements, community involvement and for reaching their goals.

“Once again, we applaud 50 women for exemplifying what it takes to be a leader,” said IBR Vice President and Publisher Sean Evans. “It is exciting that Idaho has these women in its midst. They are making their businesses and organizations – and our state – more successful and profitable.”

On Feb. 18, the 50 will be lauded at an awards event gala. At the evening’s end, one will be recognized as outstanding honoree and “Woman of the Year.” New to the program this year is the daylong Working Women’s Business Symposium at the Boise Centre.

In addition, profiles of the honorees will be published in a special magazine handed out to event attendees and available to IBR subscribers in the Feb. 21 edition.
