The Daily Record has named Harford Mutual Insurance Group a recipient of a 2023 Empowering Women Award. Empowering Women winners will be honored at The Daily Record’s Women’s Leadership Summit on Oct. 25 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
The inaugural award recognizes companies and organizations that show a strong commitment to supporting and elevating women in Maryland. Empowering Women is designed to showcase tangible and innovative efforts by companies, law firms, nonprofits, and other organizations to advance women in the workplace and community.
“We are deeply honored to receive an Empowering Women Award and be recognized for our commitment to fostering an environment where women thrive and lead,” said Steve Linkous, President & CEO of Harford Mutual Insurance Group. “This recognition inspires us to continue creating opportunities for women to excel within our organization and beyond.”
Honorees demonstrate a track record of hiring and promoting women; support programs to mentor women in their organizations and address inequalities; show a strong record of women on the company’s board or in C-suite positions; and establish DEI programs and philanthropic efforts to support women. Judges reviewed each nominee’s application and letters of reference and evaluated the information relative to the company’s resources.
“The 2023 Empowering Women honorees demonstrate a consistent commitment to recruiting, hiring and promoting women in their organizations. They also know the benefit of mentoring programs for women and understand the value of women in leadership positions,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of BridgeTower Media/The Daily Record. “We at The Daily Record are pleased to honor these incredible organizations for empowering women each and every day.”
Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Oct. 26 issue of The Daily Record and will be available online at TheDailyRecord.com.
