Be Leaderly Earns Recognition For Their Thought Leadership

Be Leaderly’s Gold Stevie® Award acknowledges the company’s monthly newsletter. It’s crafted for aspiring, corporate women leaders to gain access to leadership articles, research, tips, and advice. With a following of over 25,000 active subscribers, Be Leaderly’s newsletter is not only a trusted source of fresh career advice—it regularly showcases both aspiring and well-established women leaders, providing them increased recognition and visibility.

This year, more than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select the Stevie Award winners. Judges described Be Leaderly’s newsletter as using “powerful and timely words” and being “informative,” “insightful,” and “compelling.”

Be Leaderly’s Silver Stevie® Award for Best Research Report or White Paper was earned alongside an impressive slate of companies including Accenture, Dow Jones & Company, Inc., Honeywell, and Sallie Mae. Be Leaderly’s research report, “Out of the Comfort Zone: How women and men size up stretch assignments—and why leaders should care,” assesses the powerful role stretch assignments play in one’s career and point to actions companies can take to make these opportunities more accessible to women, in particular.
