Long Island Business News launched the Top 50 Most Influential Women in Business awards in 2000 to recognize the important role women play in Long Island's economy. The honorees represent the most influential women in business, government, education, and the not-for-profit fields, and are selected by a panel of business leaders based on professional accomplishment, mentoring and community involvement. Women nominated for the Top 50 award must live AND work on Long Island in Nassau County or Suffolk County.
Honorees receive a unique crystal memento at the elegant dinner. Women selected for this honor for a third year are retired to the Hall of Fame and a special Lifetime Achievement Honoree has been chosen since 2006. A companion publication highlights the Top 50 and is inserted into the newspaper edition following the gala.
Guest speakers at the event have included Good Morning America news host Robin Roberts; Cokie Roberts, co-host of ABC television's "This Week" program; Gourmet Magazine editor, Ruth Reichl, Ms. Magazine founder Gloria Steinem and Faith Popcorn, market trends consultant to the Fortune 500.
The event attracts more than 700 of the Island's top business leaders, giving attendees an opportunity to network with decision makers at the highest level, and affords entrepreneurs and woman at the executive level an opportunity to connect to further enhance business relationships.
