A crowd of nearly 325 guests gathered at The Westin Annapolis Dec. 3 to honor the 2018 Leading Women winners.

The Daily Record created the Leading Women award in 2010 to celebrate successful women who are 40 years old or younger. This year, 52 women were honored. These women are extremely accomplished while still juggling family commitments, community service, mentoring, education and a host of other priorities. They are Maryland’s future women leaders.

“Leading Women are making an incredible impact on their professions. In addition, they share a relentless commitment to inspiring change and are active volunteers and leaders in their communities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They are extremely accomplished and their early success is just a prelude to the future. The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”

The recognition sponsor for the event was Keswick. A sponsor for several years, Keswick has also awarded a scholarship to support a young woman’s endeavor to have a successful career in health care. This year’s recipient was Emma Durham, a senior at Notre Dame of Maryland University.

Table sponsors included Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics Inc., BEACON at Salisbury University, Brown Advisory, Confidio, Havas Helia North America, The Jaklitsch Law Group, Maryland Department of General Services and Planned Parenthood of Maryland.

Visionary sponsors were Epsilon Registration and VPC Inc.
