Friendly Senior Living Announced as a 2023 Elevating Women Honoree by Rochester Business Journal

Rochester Business Journal has selected Friendly Senior Living as a 2023 Elevating Women honoree.

The Elevating Women awards shine a light on companies and organizations that have demonstrated tangible efforts and documented results in supporting and empowering women in New York. Nominated companies are judged on documented hiring and promoting of women; leadership positions held by women; advocacy for the cause of women internally and externally; and efforts to cultivate the next generation of women professionals. Elevating Women honorees were selected by the editors of the Rochester Business Journal.

“We are very proud and honored that Friendly Senior Living has been recognized as a recipient of the 2023 Elevating Women award. As a non-profit organization founded by a group of charitable women in 1849, Friendly Senior Living today continues a long and strong tradition of elevating women,” said Glen Cooper, President & CEO. “Our commitment is demonstrated in a number of significant ways, including robust training and educational opportunities that support meaningful career development, and actively recruiting, investing in and supporting women at all levels of the organization.”

“The organizations being honored by the 2023 Elevating Women awards are committed to advancing women in the workplace. They know the value of recruiting, hiring, promoting and mentoring women,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of BridgeTower Media/Rochester Business Journal. “In addition, they recognize the importance of women on their board and in the C-Suite and work to combat inequality. We at the Rochester Business Journal are pleased to congratulate this year’s honorees.”
