Washington, DC—December 23, 2019—Walker’s Legacy, a digital platform for the professional and entrepreneurial multicultural woman, is proud to announce its newest team of National City Directors. City Directors work to implement the Walker’s Legacy mission to engage, inspire, and equip professional and entrepreneurial multicultural women in their local areas. Cities include Baton Rouge, Chicago, Durham, Greenville (SC), Houston, Jacksonville (FL), Los Angeles, New York, Newark, and Washington, DC.
“Walker’s Legacy understands that the power of our organization comes from the power of the community that we work hard to build every day,” said Natalie Madeira Cofield, Founder & CEO of Walker’s Legacy. “Extending our programming to local markets provides an opportunity to take our digital engagement offline through meaningful programming and encourages the development of local ecosystems of support that are critical to the women we support.”
The ten (10) Walker’s Legacy City Directors were selected from a national call that garnered a pool of more than 300 talented applicants. Selected leaders will aid in furthering the Walker’s Legacy mission in their local business communities through impactful in-person programming and organizational collaboration and partnerships.
