Top 50 Most Powerful Women in New York Announced
Last week, Energy Focus and invited guests from the U.S. Green Building Council had the honor of attending Crain’s New York’s 50 Most Powerful Women luncheon in New York City. Energy Focus staff in attendance represented the company as both an event sponsor and attendee, rubbing shoulders with NYC’s most successful women in real estate, healthcare, education, public policy, law, business, finance and more. The factors that Crain’s took into consideration while choosing the top 50 included job titles, chains of command, organization’s revenues and scope, and to their public engagement. One of the key facts presented at the luncheon was that for the first time ever this year, women were appointed to lead two of the Big 4 accounting firms.
