SGF Business Insider - April 2021: How Are Women Empowered to Lead in Our Community?


In March, the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual ATHENA Award ceremony, recognizing two women who make a difference in our community. The ATHENA Award is given to someone who has spent their career empowering women to achieve greatness and improving the quality of life for others in the community. The Virginia Fry Rising Star Award is given to a young professional woman who is already making a difference in the community for herself and other women.

In this episode, we talk with ATHENA recipient Karen Kramer of CoxHealth and Rising Star recipient Brandy Harris of Boys and Girls Clubs of Springfield about their personal journeys, the importance of support networks, who has inspired them and how they work to inspire others.
