Sego Awards founders say event seeks to recognize women
The Sego Awards, business awards specifically honoring female CEOs and founders in Utah, held its second annual awards show Friday night, honoring approximately 60 women for their business success, community impact and more.
New this year was the addition of two new categories for finalists: community and culture, and food and restaurants.
The two categories, according to Sego Awards co-founders Amy Stellhorn and Trent Mano, were added to recognize women who were having an impact in their spheres, the arts, music or the nonprofit space.
“We ... wanted to make sure that we’re recognizing entrepreneurs and leaders in the community that can’t get recognized off of their revenue,” Mano explained.
