The Daily Record honors Leading Women

The Daily Record announced today the 46 women who are among the 2014 Leading Women honorees.

These women, who are 40 years of age or younger, will be recognized at an awards event Dec. 4 at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore, at 300 Light St.

The Daily Record launched the Leading Women awards in 2010, at the 15th annual Maryland’s Top 100 Women celebration, to recognize the next generation of women leaders in the state.

Nominees for Leading Women completed an application that outlined their education and career history, examples of mentoring, career-related officer and board memberships in professional, business or trade organizations, volunteer involvement in civic and nonprofit organizations, awards and honors, professional accomplishments and commitment to inspiring change in their organization or the community.

A panel of business and legal professionals and a representative of The Daily Record selected the honorees based on their professional experience, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change.

“Those being honored as The Daily Record’s Leading Women are extraordinary. They are juggling tough jobs, family commitments, community service, mentoring, education and a host of other priorities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They are inspiring change across Maryland and creating ideas, processes and products that will contribute to the success of tomorrow. We are proud to honor them.”
