Dunwoody business owners were honored last month when the Greater Women’s Business Council, Inc. hosted its annual LACE Awards in November at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre.
The annual black tie affair was hosted to honor women-owned businesses and corporations for their high-spirited commitment and outstanding contributions to supplier excellence. The organization is the leading provider of certification and development resources for certified women business enterprises (WBEs) in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
Dunwoody-based companies PS Energy Group and PeopleSourcer were awarded Trailblazer of the Year award by The Greater Women’s Business Council (GWBC) during its recent 2015 Ladies Achieving Continuous Excellence (LACE) Awards. Livia Whisenhunt, president & CEO of PS Energy and Debra Laste, CEO and founder of PeopleSourcer are both certified women-owned businesses with GWBC and were selected based on their leadership, creativity and innovation in supplier relations with major corporations.
PeopleSourcer took Category II Trailblazer Award and Category IV Trailblazer Award went to PS Energy.
The gala began with the popular LACE Pre-Show Red Carpet Reception and the ‘Not-So-Silent’ Silent Auction. The excitement continued with a special Motown Revue performed by the Infinity Show Band and recognition of GWBC Legacy Partners who have been certified women business owners for 10 years and 15 years. This year’s festivities helped close-out GWBC’s 15th anniversary celebration. Founding partners AT&T, Delta Air Lines, Georgia Power and UPS among others received special tributes for their time-honored support of GWBC and women business owners.
