This morning I had the privilege of attending a press conference where the United Way of Northwest CT's Women's Leadership Initiative announced JoAnn Ryan as the recipient of its first "Woman of the Year" Award. The Susan B. Anthony Project was also announced as the "Best Supporting Organization in the Role of Empowering Women." It was inspiring to see JoAnn, who so ably and enthusiastically leads our regional chamber of commerce, accept the honor. JoAnn appeared to be genuinely surprised at being the first recipient of this prestigious new award. But it came as no surprise to me and to the many others who witness her leadership in so many avenues.
