STEMconnector CEO, Edie Fraser, wins Enterprising Women Magazine's Legacy Award
Publisher and CEO of Enterprising Women magazine, Monica Smiley, released a statement on Edie's Award, stating, "For more than a decade, Edie Fraser has worked tirelessly to help build the Enterprising Women community into a strong network and an effective, dynamic publication. She was also instrumental in the launch of the new Enterprising Women Foundation in 2011 because she feels so strongly about encouraging women entrepreneurs to become philanthropists and to give back generously to mentor and inspire women and girls to start and grow businesses. We honored Edie with the 2012 Legacy Award to recognize her outstanding lifetime of work building strong networks for women entrepreneurs and mentoring so many women in business. She has opened so many doors for women in business and government, and is an inspiration to all.” Read more about the announcement here.
