Nominations: Women "Greening" Pittsburgh and 40 Under 40 2011

Two honors you should take note of ...

    • The Women & Girls Foundation of SW PA has selected "Women Greening Pittsburgh" as the theme for their annual recognition of prominent women in a local industry. Nominations are due by April 22, 2011 and the ceremony is scheduled for November.

      On November 19th, the Women and Girls Foundation will celebrate outstanding women and girls in Southwestern Pennsylvania engaged in environmentally conscious innovation. This gala will honor women who through their actions, words and work are leading the way in green energy, green policy, green technology and green innovation in our region. We invite you to nominate a woman or girl in Southwest Pennsylvania who is engaged in leading the way in green energy, green policy, green technology, and green innovation in our region. Please help us recognize and celebrate the achievements of accomplished women and girls in our region by nominating someone you admire in your community, company or organization.
      Nomination information is available here.

    • It is also time to honor Pittsburgh's 40 Under 40, a collaboration of Pittsburgh Magazine and PUMP. 40 Under 40 looks for individuals with a unique personal story and significant communnity contributions The winners and honors are also bestowed in November. Noominations are due June 3, 2011. Nomination forms here.

    This is where I usually insert the story of how my 40 under 40 honor in 2004 eventually led me to blogging. That seems less and less relevant as the years march on, but I genuinely appreciate the recognition especially as it gave a little exposure to the LGBTQ community.

    An on a note to tie this up, I received my 40 under 40 award the same year as Women & Girls Foundation CEO, Heather Arnet. :-)
