Each recipient has helped raise the standards and level of professionalism in business, while inspiring and mentoring future generations, laying the groundwork that encourages all women to strive for excellence.
Megan said in her acceptance speech, “Most likely it’s your fear of success that is going to be one of your biggest challenges to overcome but you’ll think it’s your fear of failure more often than not.”

She started Rock Against Racism while in college as a community volunteer program, raising funds and awareness for the YWCA. She also did volunteer work in the Dominican Republic teaching English to children and building homes with Habitat for Humanity.
