Two Baltimore communicators — TBC President Nichole Baccala Ward, pictured, and Adashmore Creative’s Jennifer Dodson — have been recognized as two of The Daily Record’s 2016 Leading Women. The Daily Record’s Leading Women awards honor 50 women who are 40 years of age or younger for the accomplishments they have made so far in their careers.
A panel of previous Top 100 Women and Leading Women winners selected the honorees based on their professional experience, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change.
The Daily Record launched the Leading Women awards in 2010 to recognize the next generation of Maryland’s women leaders, according to Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher. With the announcement of this year’s winners, 350 women will have received the award since its founding.
The 2016 Leading Women awards will be presented Dec. 5 at a reception and dinner at The Westin in Annapolis. Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Dec. 6 issue of The Daily Record.
