NC Women Business
Owner Hall of Fame Criteria


Regardless of whether the inductee is living or deceased, their accomplishments and/or contributions are of such special significance that they will be thought of as outstanding when reflected upon from the perspective of future generations. Consideration of potential inductees requires that their efforts, accomplishments and impact be documented and widely honored.

Inductees must have:



  • Made enduring contributions to North Carolina’s entrepreneurial community
  • Made an impact on women’s entrepreneurial development in North Carolina
  • A meaningful connection to North Carolina (such as place of birth, education, and/or business location) and
  • Demonstrated leadership qualities or a spirit of entrepreneurial innovation that can serve as an inspiration to future generations of North Carolina entrepreneurs

Selection for the North Carolina Women Business Owners Hall of Fame requires that the woman's efforts, accomplishments and impact be documented and widely honored within the business community. Further, the criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame emphasizes the descriptors “significant”, “enduring contributions" and “impact” on women’s entrepreneurial development. If you know of a woman whose accomplishments encompass all three components, please provide us with her name and successes so we can research her background further.

Nominations for 2022 are now OPEN!

A selection committee made up of representatives from numerous North Carolina organizations will choose the members of the 2022 class of the NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame to be honored at a Gala in October.

"What an honor and privilege to be inducted into the NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame! I'm still pinching myself! When I look at the diverse
class of inductees, I'm reminded of just how much impact women have on our great state! Having worked in a non traditional role for nearly twenty
years and forged my own path through perseverance and resilience, I am so proud of myself and the rest of the inductees for setting the
bar high and proving that you can do anything you set your mind to! Strong networking and support from one another, as well as
investing in others, are the keys to success in my book. I so honored and humbled to be in such an elite class of women!"
