ABOUT THE Q AWARD
The Quadruplicity Conference Award, the “Q Award,” is presented annually by the Business Women’s Round Table as part of the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Q Award honors the accomplishments and contributions of many women in our Chamber, with the winner being ultimately recognized as the Chamber’s Annual Businesswoman.
The Q Award was specifically designed with a focus on recognizing the unique strengths, capabilities and contributions of women in our local community. It has evolved out of the internationally recognized ATHENA Leadership Award®, which has been presented at the annual Quadruplicity Women’s Conference for over 4 years, starting in 2009.
Award nominations will be solicited for women who best exemplify the following criteria: A woman who inspires others by exemplifying leadership, success, community service, and who demonstrates support for the Chamber and for other women.
By recognizing outstanding women in our community, we create an environment that supports the development of women leaders. The Q Award winner was honored at the Quadruplicity Conference in February 2017, including a commemorative plaque as well as a listing in the Chamber’s Annual Dinner Program and acknowledgement on the Chamber’s website. In addition, a feature article on the Q Award winner is run in Charlottesville Woman magazine, the Charlottesville Newsplex, the Charlottesville Radio Group and The Daily Progress.
