Baltimore, Md. — The Daily Record has announced the 2015 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women, the 20th anniversary of the award program.
The Daily Record began Maryland’s Top 100 Women in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievement by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring.
Nearly 400 were nominated for the statewide honor. Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships, and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit letters of recommendation from those who are familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community and through mentoring.
A panel of judges comprised of business professionals and past Maryland’s Top 100 Women winners from throughout Maryland reviewed the applications and selected this year’s honorees.
In 2015, 70 women are first-time recipients. Eleven women will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence. Circle of Excellence honorees will receive the award for a third and final time.
“This year’s Maryland’s Top 100 Women are extraordinary,” Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record, said in a statement. “They go above and beyond in everything they do. They lead companies, create change, break barriers, chart new territory and make a difference at home, at work and in their communities. They inspire those around them to be the best they can be. The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”
The awards will be presented at a cocktail reception on Monday, May 4, starting at 5 p.m. at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., Baltimore. The awards will be presented at 6:30 p.m. followed by a dessert reception. Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Friday, May 8, issue of The Daily Record and available online.
The Circle of Excellence Sponsor of The Daily Record’s 2015 Maryland’s Top 100 Women is GBMC. The Reception Sponsor is Wells Fargo. Preferred Seating Sponsors are Chef’s Expressions, Epsilon Registration and VPC Inc.
