The Women of Influence Awards 2019 recognize local women who have made a strong impact as leaders, innovators and change-makers in the community. We look to honor women who have made outstanding contributions to their industries or fields through their leadership and entrepreneurship, meaningful accomplishments and achievements, and breaking down barriers or making significant advancements. Congratulations to to this years three award winners Jamie Tissington – Young Women of Influence, Ejibola Adetokunbo-Taiwo – Trailblazing Women of Influence and Kelly Benning – Distinguished Women of Influence.  Thank you to our incredibly inspiring keynote speaker Tracey Persson for her words of wisdom!

The awards take place in conjunction with International Women’s Day 2018 to recognize leadership and innovation in all its forms and celebrate the strength and diversity of the women in our community.
