Prince William Living‘s Influential Women Awards

When Prince William Living launched its first Influential Women Awards years ago, we quickly realized that this topic resonated with readers. Entries poured in, and the issue announcing the inaugural winners was one of our most-read to date. Choosing just five women from the impressive entries was no easy task for our judges.  Today it isn’t any easier, but we are proud to see how the awards have grown and our judges include past winners! Many women in Greater Prince William give of themselves to strengthen our community, leaving their marks in the business world and serving as inspirations to others. Join us as we celebrate our 2023 winners.  Tickets include complimentary beverages and appetizers for you to enjoy while you network with other attendees. Cash bar available. Make connections in a relaxed atmosphere (Business casual) while celebrating our Influential Women with a short awards presentation. Come out and meet our readers, businesses, and community leaders. Wednesday, March 1, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. | Sweeney Barn, 9310 Discovery Blvd., Manassas
