Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress, and quality of life.
WETM will celebrate local women that inspire, lead, and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.
