Capitol Heights, MD (PRWEB) September 24, 2009
Turtle Wings founder, Elizabeth Wilmot, is anticipating an eventful November after being selected as a finalist for both the Heroines in Technology award and the EcoCEO award.
"The most important part of being nominated is that it brings attention to all the work we've done as a company," Wilmot said. "It's nice to have a seal of approval on our environmental efforts. Even though these are individual nominations, the recognition goes out to the entire Turtle Wings team." Elizabeth was chosen as a finalist because of her success as CEO of Turtle Wings, an environmental services company and her volunteer work as an active member of TWIG, a not-for-profit group which raises money to support Inova Alexandria Hospital in Virginia.
SmartCEO's EcoCEO award recognizes companies in the greater Baltimore-Washington D.C. area that have implemented environmentally friendly practices into their business. As a result of being chosen as a finalist, Turtle Wings will be profiled in the November issue of SmartCEO Magazine. Elizabeth was recently profiled in the Washington Post Magazine in their September 6th issue.
The 9th Annual March of Dimes Heroines in Technology award recognizes women in the technology field who exemplify volunteer service in the community. The black tie gala will be held at 6 p.m. on Friday, November 13, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Reston, Virginia. The event is a benefit for the March of Dimes, which conducts the event with Women in Technology.
