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 Aug. 13 -- registration details are below. Full profiles on each of the honorees will be published in the July 31 edition of the Business Record.
