The Daily Record’s Leading Women awards honor 50 women who are 40 years of age or younger for the accomplishments they have made so far in their careers.
A panel of previous Top 100 Women and Leading Women winners selected the honorees based on their professional experience, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change. The Daily Record launched the Leading Women awards in 2010 to recognize the next generation of Maryland’s women leaders.
“The 2019 Leading Women excel in their professional lives and in service to their communities. They juggle tough jobs, family commitments, community service, mentoring, education and a host of other priorities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “Their tremendous accomplishments are but a prelude to many more in the future. The Daily Record is pleased to recognize them for their accomplishments.”
“This year’s Leading Women honorees are Maryland’s future. They are professionally successful at a young age and are also committed to making a difference and inspiring change,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “These women are simply extraordinary, and The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”
The 2019 Leading Women awards will be presented Dec. 2 at a reception and dinner starting at 5:30 p.m. at Westin Annapolis, 100 Westgate Circle in Annapolis. Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Dec. 3 issue of The Daily Record and available online at www.TheDailyRecord.com. The event hashtag is #TDRawards.
