It is our pleasure and privilege to present you with the 2014 Class of Women to Watch. On the following pages, you’ll meet 27 local women who are making a big impact in business, philanthropy and in our community.

For the second time since the program’s inception, we opened nominations to you, our readers. Once nominations closed, a panel of editors and publishers from Arkansas Business Publishing Group vetted each woman before naming her to this list, which comprises some of the city’s most notable women. These women are difference makers, movers and shakers, thinkers, doers, and above all, women to watch.

Please join us in saying congratulations to these extraordinary women!
