NEW YORK—Collaborative. Confident. Accomplished. Supportive. These are the characteristics that describe this year’s “class” of Vision Monday’s Most Influential Women. Today, Vision Monday is announcing its 2023 roster of 51 women of accomplishment, who were selected by VM’s editors from several hundreds of submissions. All are leaders who are contributing their many talents to the optical business and vision care field in many ways. They join hundreds of women in prior years who have been recognized for their work and contributions.

This edition will mark the 21st year of our Special Report. This year’s group of Influential Women is made up of executives, sales and marketing professionals, ECPs, administrators, researchers and teachers. This eclectic mix is emblematic of the broad reach of women in our industry and indicative of how deeply they are embedded in its fabric.

For this year’s Annual Report, VM considered women who are making a difference in the following five categories: Executive Suite, Mentors, Rising Stars, Innovators and Above & Beyond. 

We invite you to meet these “PowHERful!” optical achievers and join us in celebrating their varied skills and accomplishments. To read this year’s full report click here. To register for the special lunch event honoring this year's Most Influential Women, click here.
