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. Full profiles on each of the honorees were published in the July 31 edition of the Business Record and are available below.

The nomination period for the 2016 Women of Influence awards will open in the spring of 2016.
