National Business Women's Week

National Business Women's Week (NBWW) has been celebrated annually since 1928.

During the third week of October, the accomplishments of working women are celebrated and acknowledged.

The objectives of NBWW are as follows:

• To promote full participation and equity for women in the workplace.

• To publicize the achievements of business and professional women on the local, state and national level.

Over the years, NBWW has become an event widely recognized by public and private institutions and local communities.

NBWW has grown into a nationwide salute to all working women, as well as an opportunity to spotlight issues of importance to working women.

The Lakes Area Professional Women's (LAPW) organization acknowledged NBWW with a luncheon on Wednesday, October 19.

At this event, LAPW recognized this year's Employers of the Year and Professional Woman of the Year.

Information on all of these honorees can be found in this special section.
