“For 20 years, the Chamber’s Women’s Network has worked to promote and expand opportunities for women across Greater Boston, and to celebrate the significant contributions women make to our economy and our community,” Paul Guzzi, president and chief executive of the Greater Boston Chamber, said in a statement. “The Annual Pinnacle Awards are the signature event of the Women’s Network. In the last two decades, we have recognized nearly 140 female leaders for their professional accomplishments. The 2014 honorees are exceptional and inspiring leaders who are making an incredible impact in their industries and beyond. The chamber looks forward to honoring these outstanding women, and to paying special tribute to Angela Menino on Jan.30.”
