We believe in giving credit where credit is due. The Gutsy Gal Award was created to honor women from all walks of life, doing all levels of gutsy things from small acts of kindness for strangers, to community programs, to being the "first" in boardrooms and even space!
Twice a month, we like to honor a two gutsy woman, one young and one "experienced" (we don't use the word old around here!)
You can view all of our awardees, past and present here. You can also nominate the gutsy gal in your life by emailing us here.
