Presenting Sponsor, CalViva Health, is honored to partner with Marjaree Mason Center to host the 39th Annual Top Ten Professional Women and Leading Business Awards, a prestigious awards ceremony honoring local professionals. This event pays tribute to ten women who serve as role models and give back to their communities, all while making strides in their professions. One business is also honored as the Leading Business of the Year for its support of women and women’s issues. We're excited to announce this year's speaker, sponsored by Valley Children's Healthcare, Stephanie Land. Land’s bestselling debut memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive shares her resilience throughout her experience navigating poverty as a single mother escaping domestic violence while enduring the physical, economic, and social brutality that domestic workers face. The memoir inspired Netflix’s Golden Globe Award-nominated series, MAID, starring Margaret Qualley, Andie McDowell, Nick Robinson and Anika Noni Rose. With Land as an executive producer on the show, it is one of Netflix’s most-watched series ever, reaching over 67 million households in its first month and over 469 million hours viewed. Land continues to write and currently works on her next book, Class, which reports on college education in America and details her own experience as a college student exposed to the costs of receiving an education. Her writing about economic and social justice, domestic abuse, chronic illness, and motherhood have been published by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Atlantic, and The New York Review of Books, among many other outlets.
