McLean, Va., 2016 - Women's Network in Electronic Transactions (Wnet), the premier organization dedicated to women in payments, congratulates immediate past president, Linda Rossetti, president, Bluestone Payments, LLC on being honored with the ETA Pay It Forward Award.  This award recognizes and thanks the unsung everyday heroes who work in the payments industry and make the world a better place through community service.

"Linda has always had a passion in life for helping women.  She is motivated to support and mentor women in their careers and encourage personal enrichment," said Chris Lee, Wnet President and President, North American Strategic Partnerships & Emerging Markets, Moneris Solutions.  "She also developed Wnet's chapter program to foster networking and mentoring to assist women to achieve greater personal success at a local level."
