“The annual APEX Awards allows our community to honor the many remarkable women who are doing incredible things, and we’re looking forward to this opportunity to celebrate when it is safer for our community to gather,” said Tracy Siekmann, co-chair of the 2020 APEX Awards. “As we work to overcome these unprecedented times, you can help lift the spirits of an inspirational, hardworking leader by nominating them for this prestigious recognition.”
