The Gwinnett Chamber’s Moxie Awards recognize both individuals and organizations alike. Organizational awards highlight companies that support the advancement of women, as well as those that are women-led. Individual awards honor those who are trailblazers in a male-dominated field, Gwinnett County champions, emerging leaders, professionals who are at the peak of their career, and those who are generous with their time, talent or resources.
