Lehigh Valley Business has selected 38 women for its 2021 Women of Influence awards.
The award honors high-achieving women for their career accomplishments. The honorees are selected based on their professional experience, community involvement, leadership and sustained commitment to mentoring.
Circle of Excellence honorees are women of longstanding, notable success in the community who are leading the way for other women.
LVB added a new category this year, “Women to Watch,” which honors women leaders 35 or younger who demonstrate outstanding professional accomplishments, community involvement and commitment to positive change.
To be eligible for the awards, candidates must live or work in the Greater Lehigh Valley area, which includes Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Lower Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, upper Bucks, Schuylkill or Warren counties.
“The 2021 Women of Influence honorees are extremely accomplished,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, group publisher of Lehigh Valley Business. “They are innovators, creators and mentors who inspire others with service to their professions and to their communities. “They mentor and pave the way for future generations of women leaders. Lehigh Valley Business is pleased to honor them.”
