As the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas prepares to celebrate 25 years of creating economic security for women and girls in Arkansas, we are partnering with Soirée magazine to produce a publication that celebrates the bold, innovative business women in Arkansas.
The completed list will recognize 100 outstanding and ambitious women, across the state. Our goal is to create a list that reflects the spirit of ingenuity and ambition at every stage of their career journey, by honoring the visionary impact they have on the communities and businesses they are leading.
We anticipate this list including a mix of household names — CEOs and board chairs who typically populate “power” lists — as well as rising stars, and those who prefer their influence and accomplishments remain behind the scenes.
We asked for nominations from the state. Who are the female leaders and executives from every region of the state that you value? What women serve on your board of directors and should be honored for their impact on the state?
Who are we not aware of? Who is actively plotting the course of our state?
We are currently working on the 2023 edition of the Top 100 Women of Impact.
Nominations closed on March 17, 2023.
***Please Note: At the WFA we want to ensure we are serving all women in our state, and that each project and program we develop is empowering diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. This will help us know if we are reaching all audiences and serving all Arkansas women. Demographic information about nominees will not be made publicly available, and the choice to not disclose this information will in no way affect the selection of nominees. We appreciate nominators and nominees trusting us with the information that is inherently their own.
The Top 100 Women of Impact project is a joint effort between Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, Arkansas Business Publishing Group and Little Rock Soirée.
