Each fall ABiz profiles up to 10 inspiring women from across the community — business, politics, education, non-profits — who are still active in their careers and recognized for their professionalism, entrepreneurship, civic involvement and community leadership. We also honor a small group of trailblazers who are retired or semi-retired and helped pave the way for succeeding generations of women. The Women Who Mean Business honorees and trailblazers will be featured as a cover story in the September issue of ABiz, which publishes Aug. 31.

The premier recognition for women of influence in Acadiana, this is the 14th year for the inspiring event and awards luncheon that attracts more than 350 people. Sponsored by IberiaBank, the 2011 luncheon is Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 11:45 a.m. at River Oaks on Kaliste Saloom Road.
