Business Life is proud to introduce you to its 21st annual collection of remarkable women who are making a difference in our communities. These women are always inspiring and refreshing.
This year's photo shoot at The Americana at Brand featured a congratulatory reception for these outstanding women business owners, elected officials, nonprofit executives, and community leaders. Many of the women honored this year are aware of the struggles of women, men, and families in this economy, and have talked about their commitment to job creation, pay equity, and more opportunities for all.
The women featured below are marked by their gratitude for the encouragement, examples, and mentoring that others gave to them, and emphasize that they are determined to give back. Some of their comments in response to questions from Business Life talk about their definitions of success, and the importance of mentors and 'giving back' in their own lives. The future for those whose lives they touch is definitely brighter. Congratulations to each and every Woman Achiever listed below.
