The Daily Record’s Top 100 Women was introduced in 1996 to recognize high-achieving Maryland women who are making an impact through their leadership, community service and mentoring. Twenty-five years later more than 1,500 women have been honored and The Daily Record continues to create opportunities to recognize, education and celebrate women through Leading Women, Path to Excellence and the Women’s Leadership Summit all under our Women Who Lead brand.

During 2020 The Daily Record will celebrate the IMPACT of The Daily Record’s Top 100 Women who broke the glass ceiling, who are changing the way business is done and leading the way for future generations.
