The Daily Record is celebrating its 20th anniversary of Maryland’s Top 100 Women. The program was launched in 1996 to recognize outstanding women leaders who are not only leading the way professionally but are dedicating their time and energy to community work as well as mentoring. Twenty years later this program continues to grow.
Nearly 400 women were nominated for the honor statewide. This year, of the 100 selected, 70 are first-time recipients, and 11 women will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence. A panel of judges comprised of business professionals and past Maryland’s Top 100 Women winners reviewed the applications and selected this year’s honorees.
We are proud of Nicole and are honored to have her part of our team. The awards program will be held April 18, 2016 at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, Maryland.
