Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Impactful People NW, formerly known as Impactful Women NW, is seeking community nominations for the organization’s Impactful Woman and Impactful Man of the Year Award. The organization, which was founded to create a membership-free, sales-free, space for women to connect and empower one another in the Portland and Vancouver area, has grown to include men.

Candidates must exemplify generosity, leadership, connection, innovation, and works to make living and working in the region better. Impactful People NW asks people to submit nominations so that awardees are nominated by peers who believe they deserve recognition for their efforts.

The top five nominees for each gender are then reviewed by a committee who decide who to assign the award. Nominations close on November 17, at midnight, and can be made online at https://impactfulwomennw.com/nominate.
