Each year Walker’s Legacy is proud to host our Women in Business and Civic Leadership Summit and Awards programming.  This year, in partnership with the African American Mayors Association, we are proud to celebrate the achievements of multicultural women who champion the development of policy and programs to advance economic development, entrepreneurship ecosystems, and job opportunities within their local communities.   

The theme for this year is Leading Through Crisis and will focus on awarding leaders who worked tirelessly to support their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Eligibility Requirements: Eligible women must work for federal, state, or local governments, educational institutions (all levels K- university), economic development-focused nonprofit organizations (chambers of commerce, community/economic development corporations), micro-finance institutions or public-private partnerships. For-profit businesses or non-economic development-related nonprofit organizations are not eligible. 

Nominations will close on February 8, 2021, at 5:00 PM EST.
