The Women of FIRE program, presented by Banking New England Magazine and American Business Media, celebrates the most talented, the most ambitious, the most innovative and the most philanthropic women from the Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate industries. Women of FIRE recipients are chosen through a very selective process with nominations solicited from our readers and a panel of judges who weigh all of the nominees, their experience and accomplishments before choosing each winner. Nominations will be accepted through Friday, August 9th and winners will be announced in late August. Recipients will be featured in the September/October issue of Banking New England and honored during an awards luncheon on Friday, October 11, 2019 at The Verve Crowne Plaza in Natick, MA. All are welcome to attend the event and help us honor these exceptional women.
