Vote for Women Who Shape Alabama


Teachers. Doctors. Lawyers. Business leaders. Artists. Philanthropists. The women who shape Alabama are everywhere. What they have in common is their commitment to working to make others’ lives better.

They’re the ones working tirelessly to drive movements, businesses, and industries that can make a difference. Since they don’t work for their own glory, they’re often not given the recognition they deserve. That’s where we come in.

We want to know who you think are Women Who Shape The State. Honorees will be profiled on and recognized at our awards luncheon on Nov. 5.

Right now, we’re calling for nominations. If there’s one of your coworkers or colleagues who you think is working to make a difference in the community, nominate her now. Nominations open through Sept. 3.

Let’s give these women the recognition they deserve. Announces Second Pop-Up Dinner in Mobile
