The Greater Missouri Women of the Year Awards

Presented by Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation

Prominent leaders in Missouri who exemplify the definition of the Greater Missouri Woman are recognized and celebrated at a luncheon presented annually by the Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation.

“A Greater Missouri Woman is recognized as accomplished in her field of endeavor. The maturity and professionalism realized by reaching her level of success are demonstrated by her leadership, civic contributions and ability to inspire and support others.”
