The Carlson Law Firm sponsored the Women Celebrating Women recognition luncheon
The Carlson Law Firm sponsored the Women Celebrating Women recognition luncheon by the Houston American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) on Saturday at the Junior League of Houston in Houston, Texas.
The luncheon recognized the top candidates of each chapter who have made notable contributions and exceptional personal and professional achievements, as well as the candidates chosen as Women of the Year for each chapter.
From the chapters represented at the luncheon, nine women were honored as top candidates and 12 were honored as Women of the Year.
Carlson Law Firm attorney and ABWA Event Co-Chair, Kathryn Knotts said that the Carlson Law Firm has sponsored this event for the past four years.
“We chose to sponsor and support ABWA because the organization is focused on empowering women in business,” Knotts said. “As a business with a large percentage of female employees, we want to support an organization that encourages growth and development of women in business.”
Knotts has been an ABWA member since 2009 and served on the executive board for her local chapter for the past four years. She is currently the president of Leading Women’s Express Network and has served on the national conference team as well as numerous committees in the Houston Area Council.
“The mission of the American Business Women’s Association is to bring together business women of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition.”
The program was designed to celebrate and recognize members that have made notable contributions and outstanding achievements. Each year, every league nominates a member with exceptional personal and professional achievements to become a candidate for the Top Ten Candidates. From the top ten finalists, one is chosen to be the American Business Woman of ABWA.
