The Better Business Bureau’s Women in Business Networking (WiBN) program is thrilled to announce the 2022 Women of Impact honorees, as well as Jeanne Porter Career Achievement Award recipient.

Women of Impact honorees are dynamic professional women who have been recognized for inspiring and encouraging those around them to actively challenge the status quo, working to improve their communities, develop their employees and advocate for women in general. Rather than being content with others just watching them work, these women involve those around them in their endeavors thereby increasing their collective impact. They understand we are “BETTER TOGETHER.”

Melissa Cutcher, Technology First, will be the recipient of the 2022 Jeanne Porter Career Achievement Award. This honor is presented annually to a woman who continues to inspire, influence and impact the business community and the world around them well beyond their initial recognition as a WiBN Top 25 Woman. This award is meant to recognize an impactful professional legacy, like that of Jeanne Porter, founder of WiBN.
