Vic­to­ria Woods, CEO of Chap­pelWood Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices in Ed­mond, and Terry Neese, founder and CEO of the In­sti­tute for Eco­nomic Em­pow­er­ment of Women in Ok­la­homa City, were among 24 lead­ers rec­og­nized this week at the 21st an­nual Global God­dess Artemis Awards

cer­e­mony in Athens, Greece.

Woods and Neese were hon­ored as lead­ers, in­no­va­tors, and vi­sion­ar­ies for im­pact­ing and sup­port­ing women.

Named af­ter the Greek god­dess of hunt­ing and pro­tec­tor of women and girls, the God­dess Artemis Awards are given an­nu­ally by the Euro-Amer­i­can Women’s Coun­cil to no­table women and men for their achieve­ments in the fields of busi­ness, pol­i­tics,

academia and the arts.

Woods was rec­og­nized for her work in sup­port­ing, im­pact­ing and em­pow­er­ing women as a wealth man­age­ment leader.

She serves as the Fi­nance Chair for the Ok­la­homa Com­mis­sion on the Sta­tus of Women and hosts events to raise funds for a va­ri­ety of char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions.

“I am hon­ored not only to re­ceive this award from the EAWC, but so proud for what it rep­re­sents for women around the world”,

Woods said.

Neese has de­vel­oped many for-profit and non­profit busi­nesses to in­crease women’s roles in busi­ness own­er­ship and shap­ing pub­lic pol­icy.

“I am proud to live in Ok­la­homa and work around the world. The knowl­edge I have gained work­ing in vil­lages, prov­inces, cities and towns around the world has pro­vided me with much in­spi­ra­tion,” Neese said.
