Selection for the North Carolina Women Business Owners Hall of Fame is not an honor that you can write a nomination for – consideration of potential inductees 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.
