It's nearly 2017, which means it's time to start recognizing our next class of award winners.
The Nashville Business Journal is excited to announce this year's list of Women of Influence winners. To come up with our list of 32 honorees, we solicited nominations from the public. An independent panel of judges, comprised of past winners, then scored our nominees on a variety of criteria, including professional accomplishments and community involvement. Those with the highest scores are reflected below (listed alphabetically by category).
Join us in congratulating this year's class, and we hope you'll join us on Feb. 8 as we recognize them at the awards luncheon.
