Crain's 2018 Women of Note nominations are now open!


We are looking for women who have interesting stories to tell — stories about the challenges they have met in their careers and personal lives. While female executives certainly are considered, nominees do not need to be executives but, women who have made a difference in Northeast Ohio, and made it a better place to live and work for all of us.

The 2018 Women of Note section will be published in the July 9 issue of Crain's Cleveland Business. Honorees will be recognized at an awards luncheon in July.
