Every year the Rochester Women’s Network honors 5 Up & Coming Businesswomen

from our community for their professional and career leadership potential at the RWN Summit Business Conference. This years conference will be featuring key note speaker Naomi Silver President Rochester Community Baseball, on September 24th. Early in my career I was honored as an Up and Coming Business woman. There is no bigger honor than being recognized among your peers as a success. I have never forgotten how great it felt for my friends to ask me if they could nominate me. Do you know of a woman who has been working in her career for 10 years or less, and is achieving great things?
