On Friday, November 18th, 2016 our CEO and co-founder, Dr. Lindy Ledohowski, headed to New York, NY for the 13th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business.
As outlined in an earlier EssayJack blog post, The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run.
How did we do?
Among many other influential and successful business women, Dr. Lindy came home as a Silver Award Winner in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year in Canada category.
As Lindy writes in a personal LinkedIn post, this award is also an acknowledgment for team EssayJack and highlights just how far we have come as a small, dynamic organisation that operates with a team of dedicated individuals who believe in the power of critical thinking and critical writing.
It is also an award that celebrates women in business. Recent Stats suggest that it is still far more likely for Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises to be run by men rather than women; so taking a moment to celebrate female entrepreneurship somehow just feels right.
The Stevie Awards Finalists were chosen by an international panel of judges and one of the judges described EssayJack as a "fantastic innovation that will help millions of students in their education". Another judge noted that EssayJack was an "innovative product assisting students and teachers on an international level" and goes on to note that "the brand has been built through the hard work and determination of Dr. Ledohowski" . The same judge concludes that "Lindy believed in EssayJack and now others do too. She deserves every success."
Overall, this is a very exciting accomplishment for our former-professor, now CEO and our dedicated team. If you're interested in learning more about EssayJack, be sure to reach out to us!
