• GNDC Announces List of Top Women to Know and Watch in North Dakota Business

    The Greater North Dakota Chamber (GNDC) is excited to announce their inaugural lists of 15 Women You Need to Know and 5 Women to Watch in North Dakota business. These lists call out individuals to celebrate their success as these accomplishments are furthering the progress of their organizations and industries.
    This list of 15 Women You Need to Know in ND Business is comprised of agents of action. In building the list, GNDC looked at trailblazers at all levels – in their organizations, among their peers, and in their community. These women have taken on leadership roles – either formally or by default.
    “Too often, we see that women do not take the time to celebrate their accomplishments. Shying away from spotlight or acknowledgement of their efforts,” stated Amanda Remynse, GNDC Vice President, Operations and Outreach. “This list is set to nod at those keeping the lights on and making payroll. They hustle each day fulfilling their professional and personal missions. They are the go-to’s, individuals that have the answers or if they don’t – they know someone that does.”
    Additionally, GNDC is celebrating 5 Women to Watch. Comprised of aspirants, this list has nominees set to make big impacts – whether it’s in a new position or field. We want to acknowledge that these women have their sights set high towards progress; we support their work.
