Yellowhammer Multimedia is proud to announce the third annual Women of Impact Awards, a celebration of strong women who shape and propel Alabama.
This year’s exemplary class of honorees is stacked with respected leaders, advisers and mentors who empower others through the lives they devote and trails they blaze across non-profit, business and governmental sectors.
From renowned medical experts to small business owners and innovators — soldiers on the front lines against COVID-19, to champions fighting for a better Alabama every day – these women are a force in our great state and we are delighted to tell their stories.
These honorees will be featured on Yellowhammer News beginning September 7. We will tell their stories one-by-one each weekday, utilizing written and video formats.
Additionally, for the first time in the history of Women of Impact, Yellowhammer Multimedia has launched a website dedicated solely to the awards. Creating in essence a “hall of fame,” each Woman of Impact and her unique story will be highlighted on the website for posterity.
