 local Equal Pay Day 2010 & Spirit of Rosie Awards Luncheon hosted by the National Committee on Pay Equity. She received the honor in the nontraditional category, which is given to a woman business owner who has achieved success in a nontraditional industry.

The annual awards celebration, which is held to raise awareness about unequal pay for women in America, honors three local women who have demonstrated success in the workplace, broken down barriers, entered non-traditional careers and proven that, just like Rosie the Riveter in World War II, women can do it.  

Tappouni founded Breaking Ground Contracting in 1997 as a certified, State of Florida, woman-owned business in the construction industry.
