CARLSBAD — Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath is announcing the honorees for the 2021 Women of Impact Awards for the 76th Assembly District. This award was created by the Assemblymember’s office to recognize North County women who stand out in their communities as innovators, leaders, and advocates. Nominations came from across the district, lifting up a diverse array of women who have made significant impact to their communities in the areas of business/entrepreneurship, military service, education, civic engagement, advocacy, activism, health and human services, community service, arts and culture, and young leadership.

I look forward to celebrating these women and all they’ve accomplished as part of our virtual ceremony later this month.”
