The Business Record's Women of Influence awards celebrate the work of women who have made a difference.

They've devoted their lives to doing things most wouldn't. They've spent countless hours on various boards and they've blazed a trail either personally or professionally for other women to follow.

Join us in congratulating this inspiring group of women, and join us at our annual event on August 4th.
Full profiles on each of the honorees will be published in the July 29 edition of the Business Record.
