Our awards gala is a night of celebration that pays tribute to the women of Central Florida making contributions to their community and their professions. Nominations for the awards come from the local community and represent a wide array of professions and accomplishments. Award categories include the top Entrepreneur, Educator, Influencer, Leader in Tech, the Deeva to Watch, and the Young Achiever, who also receives scholarship money for college.
This event is for the success-minded woman looking to make meaningful connections and gain actionable insight to help her cultivate her ideal career and lifestyle by creating a physical “vision board” that is a representation of everything she wants for her life. It is held annually and open to all.
Livestreamed on social media, these interviews with WOTR members are held frequently to provide encouragement and insight to other women in both their personal and professional lives. Topics vary but all provide important messages about believing in yourself and your capabilities to achieve the life you deserve from those who have done it for themselves.
