The Daily Record has announced its 2016 Leading Women, honoring 50 women who are 40 years of age or younger for the accomplishments they have made so far in their careers.

“The Daily Record’s 2016 Leading Women are truly inspirational. Their professional accomplishments, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change exemplifies why they are being singled out for this statewide award,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They excel to high levels professionally and personally, and The Daily Record congratulates them on this award.”

A  panel of previous Top 100 Women and Leading Women winners selected the honorees, who will be celebrated at a reception Dec. 5 at The Westin, Annapolis.

Nominees for Leading Women were asked to complete 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.
