The Grand Rapids Business Journal has chosen 50 West Michigan women to be honored for their community impact.

The Business Journal will honor its 2018 class of The 50 Most Influential Women in West Michigan at a luncheon from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on March 7 at the JW Marriott International Ballroom in downtown Grand Rapids.

The event is a biennial salute to 50 of the region’s most influential women business owners, leaders, policy-shapers and decision-makers.

A limited number of tickets for the event are still available online.

Lis Wiehl will be the keynote speaker. She is a prominent national trial lawyer, broadcast journalist and New York Times bestselling author, who for more than 15 years was a legal analyst for Fox News.

She also previously worked as a legal analyst and reporter for NBC, CBS and NPR and served as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office.
