Amy Stephenson and Lysne Tait, co-founders of Helping Women Period, received the “Caring About Women Locally” award at the Inspiration and Influence Awards ceremony on October 18, 2018. These awards are presented by Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine (CAWLM) and the Aitch Foundation to celebrate women in the mid-Michigan area and to recognize women who are inspiring, impacting and influencing change in our community.
As Amy said, “We remain so busy focusing on the work we need to do and the people we serve, it was a complete shock to be recognized at this level in our community. There are so many people doing incredible things in our community, we are very humbled to be acknowledged.”
The first Inspiration and Influence Awards ceremony has identified some remarkable women leaders with distinguished awards in the areas of community impact, women’s advancement, medical research and awarded the mid-Michigan Woman of the Year. The Greater Lansing region is full of innovative women who are positively impacting our lives within the community. Winners were selected by a panel of Michigan-based judges from the Greater Lansing community. Look for them and other winners in the upcoming edition of CAWLM.
