This is our seventh annual unveiling of 50 amazing women who are raising the bar in their communities, serving as beacons of light in their industries, and forcing change for the greater good.
WV Living is proud to celebrate these Appalachian mothers, millennials, and mavens proving that in a time full of uncertainty, divisiveness, and hate, love for one another is all we really need. No need for bulletproof bracelets or a golden lasso of truth—these women are creating a better West Virginia with their can-do attitudes and Mountain State spirit.
This virtual event was recorded live on October 20, 2020 and featured keynote speaker Ivin B. Lee, West Virginia’s first female police chief and Charleston’s first black female police officer. After the keynote, we hosted a live Q & A session, where attendees asked questions of this 2018 Wonder Woman.
