Above And Beyond: Honoring Women Of Public And Civic Mind

City & State's third annual Above & Beyond Awards recognize 25 enormously accomplished women for their excellence. This year's winners are all leaders in their respective fields, be it business, public service, media, the nonprofit sector or labor. While we could write volumes extolling the virtues and achievements of each of these women—among them, the president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the editor of Newsday, a founding member of the New York City Taxi Workers union and the vice president of global communications and public affairs for Google—the following profiles should at the very least provide an introduction to who they are—truly women of "public and civic mind."

Profiles by Azure Gilman, Matthew Hamilton, Allison Hibbs, Kristen Meriwether, Morgan Pehme and Nick Powell
