S&A Founder Wins Enterprising Women Of The Year Award


We’re excited to announce that S&A founder, Lynley Sides, has been honored with an Enterprising Women of the Year Award for 2013 from Enterprising Women magazine. Lynley received this award for her work as founder and president of S&A and as CEO of The GlueNetwork.

This award honors womenbusiness owners who have demonstrated that they have fast-growth businesses, mentor or actively support other women and girls involved in entrepreneurship, and stand out as leaders in their communities. Many of the award recipients are also leaders in key organizations that support the growth of women’s entrepreneurship. Winners will be recognized at the 11th Annual Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration on April 3 and 4 at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“The Enterprising Women of the Year Class of 2013 is a remarkable group of women leaders,” said Monica Smiley, Editor & Publisher of Enterprising Women. “This annual celebration is unlike any other event as it honors each award recipient and brings together the finest women entrepreneurs from around the world to network, share best practices and celebrate their amazing achievements.”

I greatly respect Enterprising Women for its contributions to entrepreneurship and social issues. So this recognition supports my personal mission to help business leaders do more good for the world and also for their businesses.
