Women In The Green Industry Award 2024 Resized

Women who win isn't just a catchy title; it's an embodiment of this year's Women In The Green Industry Award winners. 

These women have won many achievements, both personally and professionally; they've won the respect of others within the industry; and this year, they've won the title of Women In The Green Industry honoree. 

For the first time, Green Industry Pros broke down the award winners into three categories:

  • Up-and-Comer: Honors female professionals under 35 years of age who have made significant strides in the industry.
  • Unsung Hero: Honors an employee who always puts her nose to the grindstone but who may not always get the recognition she deserves.
  • Seasoned Pro: Honors female professionals who have been in the industry 20-plus years and who have made significant strides in promoting other women in the green industry.

With this division into categories, Green Industry Pros aims to recognize a wider variety of women leaders in the industry. The women listed below have become champions of and for the green industry, helping to create a winning industry overall. Without further ado, here are this year's winners.
