Entries are now open for the 2009 International Women in Business Awards, also known as ‘The Stevies’. The awards are open to all women executives, entrepreneurs, and the organizations they run - worldwide. The Stevie Awards are the world’s premier business awards competitions and feature four major awards programs in all – the American Business Awards, the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service, The International Business Awards (the deadline for which is June 12) and the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
For the first time ever, the awards have a dedicated regional coordinator for the Australia and New Zealand region, a previous International Women in Business Awards finalist, Yvette Adams who is based in Queensland.
Adams who runs her own creative agency says being involved with the awards as a finalist in 2008 has provided an exceptional lift to her business.
“Going to New York was a magical experience and has definitely been
beneficial to my business in numerous ways. I’m now very proud to be
assisting other enterprising Australians and New Zealanders go through
the process I did last year,” says Adams, 32-year-old who is also a
mother of two.
All organizations and individuals worldwide may participate – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Late entries will be accepted through September 30 with payment of a $35 late fee. Entry details are available at http://www.stevieawards.com/women/.

“In challenging economic times like these, there isn’t a more
cost-effective way to reward and honor your valued employees than to
nominate them for a Stevie Award,” said Stevies president Michael
Gallagher. “And there isn’t a more cost-effective way to build or
burnish your organization’s brand than to win one.”
