Leonardtown, MD., September 20, 2023 Williams, McClernan, & Stack has been announced as one of the recipients of the prestigious 2023 Empowering Women Award by The Daily Record. This accolade will be bestowed upon the honorees during The Daily Record’s Women’s Leadership Summit, scheduled for October 25, 2023, at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, at 621 West Lombard Street in Baltimore.

In its inaugural year, the Empowering Women Award aims to recognize companies and organizations that have displayed a remarkable commitment to supporting and advancing women in Maryland. This award program spotlights tangible and innovative efforts undertaken by entities, including companies, law firms, nonprofits, and various organizations, to promote the cause of women in the workplace and the community.

The criteria for selecting honorees encompass a demonstrated history of hiring and promoting women, the implementation of programs designed to mentor women within their organizations and address gender inequalities, a significant representation of women in the company’s board or C-suite positions, and the establishment of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives and philanthropic endeavors aimed at supporting women. Judges meticulously evaluated each nominee’s application and letters of reference while considering the organization’s available resources.

Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, Managing Director of BridgeTower Media/The Daily Record, commented on this year’s honorees: “The 2023 Empowering Women honorees demonstrate a consistent commitment to recruiting, hiring, and promoting women in their organizations. They also know the benefits of mentoring programs for women and understand the value of women in leadership positions. We at The Daily Record are pleased to honor these incredible organizations for empowering women every day.”

The Women’s Leadership Summit, commencing at noon on October 25, will bring together Top 100 Women, Leading Women, and other women professionals from across the state.
