• GNDC Announces 2024 List of Women To Know and Watch in North Dakota Business

    Today, the Greater North Dakota Chamber (GNDC) is pleased to introduce its annual lists of 15 Women You Should Know and 5 Women to Watch in North Dakota business. These lists spotlight individuals whose achievements are driving progress in their organizations and industries.
    The 15 Women You Should Know in ND Business are acknowledged for their proactive approach and exceptional leadership. GNDC is spotlighting these trailblazers who are being acknowledged from every level – within their organizations, among their peers, and in the community. These women have taken on leadership roles, whether in formal positions or through informal influence.
    “Acknowledging and celebrating the achievements of women in business is not just about recognizing individual success, but also about highlighting the talent and leadership that drives businesses in North Dakota forward. This list serves as a reminder of the focused contributions these women make every day, often without seeking recognition,” stated Amanda Remynse, GNDC Vice President, Operations and Outreach. “It is important to shine a spotlight on these accomplishments and the vital roles they play in our communities and industries.”
    In addition, GNDC is highlighting 5 Women to Watch. These nominees are ambitious individuals poised to make significant impacts, whether in a new role or field. GNDC acknowledges their aspirations and supports their endeavors.
