In May 2015, The Mecklenburg Times will host the seventh annual 50 Most Influential Women awards. The 50 Most Influential Women event was created to spotlight and recognize the important role women play in the greater Charlotte region, in the economy, and in society. The honorees represent the most influential women in business, government, education, and not-for-profit fields.  They are selected by a panel of independent business leaders based on professional accomplishment and community involvement within the Charlotte area. The overall ‘Woman of the Year’ award will be selected out of the 2015 honorees and announced the evening of the event.

For more information contact Tiara Benfield tiara.benfield@mecktimes.com or call 704-247-2901.
