The Central Penn Business Journal is celebrating 39 of the midstate’s most influential, up and coming and successful business leaders as part of its 2022 Women of Influence awards.
This year’s honorees fall into three categories: Women of Influence, Women to Watch and Circle of Excellence.
The Women of Influence 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.
Women to Watch honors women leaders 35 or younger who demonstrate outstanding professional accomplishments, community involvement and commitment to positive change.
Circle of Excellence honorees are women of longstanding, notable success in the community who are leading the way for other women.
To be eligible for the awards, candidates must live or work in the central Pennsylvania area, which includes Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York counties.
“The 2022 Women of Influence honorees are leading companies, creating new products, changing the way we do business and most importantly, paving the way for future generations of women. They are providing an incredible impact on the Central Pennsylvania region,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of the Central Penn Business Journal. “The women being inducted into the Circle of Excellence have demonstrated longstanding, notable success in their industries and in the community, and the Women to Watch honorees are the next generation of women leaders in Central Pennsylvania. Central Penn Business Journal is honored to recognize the accomplishments of these incredible women.”
