Baltimore, Md., October 11, 2017 — The Daily Record has selected Olivia Doherty, director of communications, Horizon Foundation, to receive one of the 2017 Leading Women awards.
The Daily Record’s Leading Women awards honor 50 women who are 40 years of age or younger for the accomplishments they have made so far in their careers. A panel of previous Top 100 Women and Leading Women winners selected the honorees based on their professional experience, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change.
The Daily Record launched the Leading Women awards in 2010 to recognize the next generation of Maryland’s women leaders.
Nominees for Leading Women were asked to complete an application that outlined their education and career history; examples of mentoring, career-related officer and board memberships in professional, business or trade organizations; volunteer involvement in civic and nonprofit organizations; awards and honors; professional accomplishments; and commitment to inspiring change in their organization or the community.
“This year’s Leading Women honorees are making outstanding contributions to their fields. They are active in their communities and are committed to inspiring change,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They are Maryland’s next generation of women leaders, and The Daily Record is honored to recognize their achievements.”
The 2017 Leading Women awards will be presented Dec. 4 at a reception and dinner starting at 5:30 p.m. at The Westin, 100 Westgate Circle in Annapolis. Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Dec. 5 issue of The Daily Record and available online at www.TheDailyRecord.com.
