Influential Women of Virginia
The Influential Women of Virginia awards recognize the outstanding efforts of women in all fields, including law, business, health care and education. The honors are given to individuals
who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities and society at large. Their energy, ideas, achievements and commitment to excellence and progress give
us a look to the future.
The 2015 class of Influential Women was recognized on May 7, 2015, during an evening program at the Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa/Short Pump in Henrico. See the names of the 2015 Honorees
