Twenty-five women, in professions ranging from architecture to education, have been selected as the 2019 Women of Influence by the Columbia Regional Business Report.

Each year, the Business Report honors a group of women who are setting the pace in their careers as well as working to make the Midlands a better place. They were nominated by Business Report readers and selected by a panel of judges.

Among this year’s honorees are leaders in architecture, higher education, law and real estate, while philanthropical and entrepreneurial spirit also received recognition. A profile of each honoree will be published in the Aug. 12 issue of the Business Report, and the women will be honored at a luncheon on Aug. 22.
