The 2016 Women of Influence was just recently celebrated by L.A. Biz recently. The venerable program honors Los Angeles women business owners who strive to be innovative, successful, and continue to “pay it forward.” Chosen leaders stand out for their achievements both in the marketplace, in addition to their commitment to their community.
The honorable “Women of Influence” is a national effort by The American City Business Journals (ACBJ) to help foster diverse business settings that can continue to generate more successful women in the future of leadership roles, as well as to identify and celebrate the women business leaders that are here today, and thriving in the marketplace.
Sherri Murphy CEO and Founder of Elite Connections International was one of the top women chosen for this award. When asked how long she’s been in business in Los Angeles, Sherri said, “I founded Elite Connections 22 years ago, and we are now one of the leading matchmaking companies nationwide. I am honored to be chosen as one of the Women of Influence by this great organization.”
Speaking about the role of women in business, President and CEO of ACBJ, Whitney Shaw, said “ACBJ understands the vital role women play in the business landscape, and we are dedicated to their success by highlighting trends, sharing insight and providing content that matters most to them through our Bizwomen site.”
Ms. Shaw continued, “ACBJ, Bizwomen and L.A. Biz are excited to recognize these outstanding women and celebrate their unwavering commitment to advancing women in business. They are utilizing their industry expertise and passion for success to foster better business climates and strengthen their communities, while inspiring other women to achieve.” A special luncheon for the awards was held at the JW Marriot L.A. Live, in Los Angeles.
The award of distinction was also given to Sherri Murphy due to the outstanding community service she engages in, through her non-profit organization called “Party With A Purpose.” With this group that Sherri founded, she and her group of matchmakers have been helping Los Angeles’ most needy children during the holidays for 17 years with a special dinner and Christmas gifts, that they normally would never have.
