The Lakes Area Professional Women’s (LAPW) organization wishes to congratulate the employers that show exceptional commitment to gender equality in the workplace by promoting a workplace culture of inclusiveness, flexibility, employee development and other positive attributes that enable women to realize their full potential.
Large employer of the year for 2021-2022 is Vance Thompson and small employer of the year is Palmer Creations.
Each year, LAPW honors businesses in two categories – large employer (those with more than 25 employees) and small employer (those with 25 or fewer employees).
Employers of the Year can be for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, or government entities. These employers support and promote fairness in the workplace, demonstrate sensitivity to the needs of female employees, provide upward mobility and demonstrate philanthropic support of the Alexandria area community.
Employers of the Year will be honored at the annual Lakes Area Professional Women’s recognition luncheon on Wednesday, March 30, at Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria. Doors open at 11 a.m. with the luncheon and program beginning at 11:30 a.m.
