Women of Influence Awards

Women of Influence Awards

The Women of Influence Awards recognize local women who have made a strong impact by promoting equality, providing opportunities for women in the community, and breaking barriers in their field.

Our region is known for its vibrancy, entrepreneurship and continuous growth and these awards are a way to celebrate women’s achievements in making this possible with equal opportunity for all.

The awards are open to women of all backgrounds, experiences, and industries.
