The contests's main goal is to highlight women who are impacting change and building thriving, heart-centered organizations, communities and cultures. To select the Sierra Nevada Top-20 Powerful Women, the NNBV is hosting a six-week nomination and voting process reaching the Northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe region. The nomination period began Feb. 21 and lasts until end of day March 19; that date was originally March 14, but NNBV staff opted to extend the period to ensure more women have the opportunity to be nominated. From there, the voting period is scheduled to take place from March 21 through April 5. Go here to learn more and to nominate someone. We are looking for nominees who have truly made an impact and a difference in your life and the lives of others.
