2022 Women of Influence Honorees

The Lehigh Valley Business Journal is proud to present its Women of Influence for 2022. These high-achieving honorees have been selected based on tremendous professional accomplishments, community involvement and a commitment to mentoring. In addition to our Women of Influence awards, to be presented May 4, we will also be honoring Women to Watch, who are women under the age of 35, and The Circle of Excellence, who are women of longstanding, notable success in the community and are leading the way for other women. Congratulations to all of the honorees.
