Bilita "Bili" Mattes

2024 Business Woman of the Year

Bilita “Bili” Mattes

Another one of our 2024 Business Woman of the Year Nominees is Bilita “Bili” Mattes, Executive Director, STEM-UP Network.

Her Nominator Said:”Bili embodies exceptional leadership qualities across all facets of her life. Her contributions have not only elevated the STEM-UP Network but have also made a lasting impact on the broader community and the advancement of women.”

We asked… Who is your role model or mentor and why? “Dale Carnegie has been my role model since I was in my 20s. So much so, that I became certified as a Dale Carnegie instructor and taught these classes as an avocation for 13 years also starting in my early 20s. His human relations principles, focus on others vs. self, and authenticity have influenced me greatly over the years both personally and professionally.”

Business Woman of the Year is sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors.

Let’s congratulate Bili on all of her success!
