Women are a major force in the local business community, and their influence is expanding to new sectors of our increasingly diversified economy. Women now comprise 47 percent of the total U.S. labor force, and economists project that females will account for 51 percent of the increase in the total labor force between 2008 and 2018.
The McKinney Chamber of Commerce recognizes the importance of women in the workforce by supporting programs such as the annual Top 25 Women in Business and Women’s Alliance of McKinney. McKinney Magazine asked our readers to identify women they believe make outstanding contributions to the community, through their professional life as well as their civic commitments.
All nominees were reviewed by an impartial, independent selection committee of respected business professionals.
The committee had the challenging task of compiling the list of the Top 25 Women in Business for 2015.
We would like to thank the selection committee, women who are successful in their careers and invested in the advancement of our community:
They recognize how important it is to celebrate individuals who go above and beyond.
