Owen & Owens is pleased to announce that Mary Burkey Owens has been recognized as a member of the 2011 Class of Influential Women of Virginia. Virginia Lawyers Media, publishers of Virginia Lawyers Weekly and the Virginia Medical Law Report, announced the selections. This awards program, now in its third year, recognizes the outstanding efforts of women in the Commonwealth in all fields, including law, business, health care, education and the arts. The honors are given to individuals who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities and society at large.
The Class of 2011 honorees will be celebrated at a gala luncheon on May 19, 2011 at the Richmond Marriott. The “Influential Woman of the Year” for 2011, to be voted on by the 2011 honorees themselves, will be announced at this luncheon. Each honoree also will be profiled in a special publication that will be distributed at the event and inserted into Virginia Lawyers Weekly in early May.
