Editor’s Note: This is a special year for Springfield Business Journal as 2019 marks the 20th year of the Most Influential Women awards. With this class, now 400 business and community leaders hold the prestigious title.
These honorees are at the top of their professional games and use their platforms to promote causes they care about. They’re leading through action, and the next generation is watching and learning.
Let’s give a round of applause to this year’s honorees and a toast with this well-known phrase: “Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.”
