“I’m extremely excited to join forces with a team of leaders dedicated to upholding such a powerful legacy and the opportunity to continue bridging the gap for multicultural women in the DC Metropolitan Area,” said Rochonda Woodard, DC City Director at Walker’s Legacy.

“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. “Extending our programming to local markets provides an opportunity to take our digital engagement off-line through meaningful programming and encourages the development of local ecosystems of support that are critical to the women we support. We look forward to working with Rochonda Woodard to provide much needed programming, content and engagement to this often overlooked community of enterprising women.”
Rochonda Woodard is one of ten (10) Walker’s Legacy City Directors selected from a national call which garnered a pool of more than 100 talented applicants.
