Most heroes are unsung. Most people's 15 minutes of fame is just the tip of the iceberg of their body of work.
Women to Watch aims to introduce readers to a baker's dozen of women who are accomplishing amazing things in the Tulsa area, largely unheralded and nearly all deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The word that comes to mind to describe the work of so many of this year's honorees is "service":
Helping people afford to buy or build a home.
Supporting small businesses and large companies so they can succeed and grow.
Creating student- and learning-focused schools.
Documenting history to empower future generations.
Feeding hungry families so they can survive and thrive.
Working to make Tulsa a fair, just, safe and fun city.
Keeping us all healthy.
Those are some pretty ambitious achievements, and it delights us to share them with you.
