On May 20, The Mecklenburg Times will host the eighth 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, law, 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 2016 honorees and announced the evening of the event.
Winners of the 2015 and 2014 50 Most Influential Women awards will not be considered as nominees.  Previous winners are eligible to be honored again in the third year after they received their award. For a full list of honorees from 2014 to 2015 please click here.
