Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the United States and several other countries are expected to attend. The presentation will be broadcast live by the Business TalkRadio Network.
More than 1,200 entries from around the globe – a record for the competition – were submitted this year for consideration in 54 categories. Artitudes was selected as a finalist for the “Best Overall Company of the Year – Service Business – up to 100 Employees” for its forward-thinking vision and organizational philosophy, which is to provide exceptional design services, develop strong client relationships and value its employees.
