With “Connecting minds, creating insights” our mission, Insight offers dynamic, creative platforms for sharing business news and information in Northeast Wisconsin — from magazines and events to digital messaging and marketing partnerships.
The Women of Influence Awards in the New North Region honor women making a difference in their communities and industries. We received more than 85 nominations for the 2020 awards and our judges decided to honor eight women. The Women of Influence event allows us to shine a spotlight on each woman and share her inspirational story on howthey’re making a difference.
Click on each woman's photos to read their stories and watch their acceptance speeches.
