QPTV Presents:
A Victoria Schneps NY Power Women In Business Event

 

Watch this show to see over 40 outstanding female business professionals from
Schneps Communications’ “Power Women of New York” Awards & Networking Event
Victoria Schneps started this tradition over 17 years ago. She created the Power Women in Business Event to recognize the best and brightest women for the work that they do in business and their communities. The women are from diverse backgrounds and gather together to network and honor each other. The backdrop for this event is at Terrace on the Park with a cocktail hour for honorees and their guests. It’s followed by a business expo, dinner and an awards ceremony where each honoree walks down the red carpet and receives a Vicki. Queens Public Television’s
President/CEO Daniel J. Leone escorted the women down the red carpet.

 

Watch this program on the web at QPTV.org or tune in on Queens Public Television’s channels. The proceeds from this event benefit Queens Centers for Progress located at 81-15 164th Street Jamaica, NY 11432; and The Child School Legacy High School located on 587 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, NY 10044.
