ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Rochester Business Journal recognized dozens of local women of excellence.

Deanna helped celebrate the accomplishments of the 50 women of excellence and six previous honorees. Organizers explained what the event means to all involved.

“We really think that this is a fantastic opportunity to show that women are playing a humongous role in the business community in Rochester,” said Ben Jacobs, associate publisher and editor of the Rochester Business Journal. “They’re in leadership positions doing amazing things and businesses are really thriving because of the important contributions women are making and we are here tonight to recognize all of that.”
