Baltimore, Md., October 13th, 2021 — The Daily Record selected M. Kendall Ludwig, president and principal designer of CurlyRed to receive one of the 2021 Leading Women awards.
The Daily Record’s Leading Women awards honor women who are 40 years of age or younger for the accomplishments they have made so far in their careers. Winners were selected for the honor based on their professional experience, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change.
They were selected by previous Leading Women and Maryland's Top 100 Women winners.
“The 2021 Leading Women are extraordinary. They are juggling tough jobs, family commitments, community service, mentoring, education and a world that has been impacted by a global pandemic,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of The Daily Record. “These young leaders are the future, and The Daily Record is honored to recognize their accomplishments.”
The winners will be honored Dec. 7 at a virtual celebration from noon to 1 p.m. at
www.thedailyrecord.com/leading-women/. Each of the winners will be celebrated for their achievements through video storytelling. Guests will have the opportunity to participate in the program with their congratulations and cheers using social media platforms from their homes or offices. For tickets, visit thedailyrecord.com/leading-women/. The event hashtag is #TDRevents.
A happy hour for winners and sponsors will be held Dec. 7 from 4 to 6:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel.
Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Dec. 8 issue of The Daily Record and available online at www.TheDailyRecord.com.
Sponsors of The Daily Record’s 2021 Leading Women awards include Recognition and Diamond Sponsor Keswick and Virtual Celebration Sponsor Epsilon Registration.
