CHICAGO — The Chicago organization Women in Public Finance will recognize three women — Chicago’s chief financial officer, Columbus’ assistant auditor, and a public finance banker and financial advisor — at its sixth annual founders awards next month.

The organization will give its lifetime achievement award to Lois Scott, a former public finance banker and financial adviser who sold her interest in the firm she started to take on the job as CFO under new Mayor Rahm Emanuel this past spring. The lifetime achievement award honors the accomplishments of a woman who has worked in municipals for at least a decade, demonstrating skill, drive, integrity and vision.
