QSR Automations has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie Award in the Achievement in Developing and Promoting Women category in the 20th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor the achievements of women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run– worldwide. The Stevie Award have been hailed as the world’s premier business award.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners last night during a gala event attended by nominees and their guests at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The event was broadcast via Livestream.
More than 1,600 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year. As a workplace led by sixty percent female executives, including CEO Angela Leet, QSR Automations is honored to have won in the Achievement in Developing and Promoting Women category.
Prior to becoming the CEO of the company she built with her late husband, Leet was no stranger to working in male-dominated industries with years of leadership experience in technology, energy and construction. It was this experience that influenced her commitment to mentoring other women in STEM.
“Mentoring both female leaders who are well-established in their careers and young adults who are just getting started is an important passion of mine,” comments Angela Leet, CEO of QSR Automations. “From one-to-one mentoring opportunities to a requirement that at least fifty percent of all C-suite positions be held by women, I am dedicated to directly overseeing the development of future women leaders within our organization.”
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on six juries.
Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards, says, “In its 20th year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received an outstanding body of nominations from women in organizations of all types, in 26 nations. We are gratified by how meaningful it is to women to win a Stevie Award, and how impactful it can be on the futures of their careers and their organizations. We congratulate all of this year’s Grand, Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners for their achievements.”
Entries for the 2024 Stevie Awards for Women in Business will open in May.
