As SR. Director of Events and Community Relations at Brandless, Taunya Brown's impact on the community is recognized through this award
LINDON, Utah, Sept. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Over 83 million women are over the age of 40. While the average female entrepreneur is 42 and the average female CEO is 48. Utah's 40 Women Over 40 Award, presented by W Collective, is breaking barriers to recognize women who are thriving in their career and making an impact in their community that are over 40. As part of their mission, they believe that representation "matters in age, race, skill, experience, opinion and thought". This organization is aimed at creating a space to "acknowledge and celebrate women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, & beyond!
