Virginia Lawyers Media, publisher of Virginia Lawyers Weekly has announced the Class of 2012 of “Influential Women of Virginia”. Sensei Enterprises’ President Sharon D. Nelson is one of the recipients of this honor. This awards program, now in its fourth year, recognizes the outstanding efforts of women in the Commonwealth in all fields, including law, business, health care, education and the arts. The honors are given to individuals who are making notable contributions to their chosen professions, their communities and society at large. The honorees will be celebrated at a gala luncheon on May 10 at the Richmond Marriott in downtown Richmond. The “Influential Woman of the Year” for 2012, to be voted on by the 2012 honorees themselves, will be announced at this luncheon. Each honoree also will be profiled in a special publication that will be distributed at the event and inserted into Virginia Lawyers Weekly in early May.
