ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Today’s Outlook celebrates the accomplishments of the recipients of this year’s Women in Business awards.
This impressive collection of talented, driven and successful professionals is a tribute to how far women have come in the workplace in recent years and decades.
It’s hard to fathom how drastically the landscape has shifted, but really, it wasn’t that long ago that, as a relative recently told me, most women had three general options for careers: teacher, nurse or secretary. Challenging careers, absolutely, and rewarding – but what a difference a half-century makes in terms of choice.
I remember a conversation with an older relative where I mentioned in passing that I’d never been to see a male doctor, with the exception of dentists and ophthalmologists. How funny, she responded, I’ve actually never been to a female doctor.
Just peruse the list of this year’s honorees, and you’ll see representatives from industries as wide-ranging as lending, media, law and medicine.
