The Women of Influence Award is given to women who have made a difference in the Corridor and who are representative role models as leaders in their fields and communities. Nominations will be taken at the beginning of the year, and honorees will be chosen by the previous year’s honorees. A reception to provide networking opportunities will be followed by a dinner and awards ceremony. The awards ceremony will honor influential women and provide honorees with an opportunity to share their stories.
