Phoenix, AZ—Walker’s Legacy has announced Paula Johnson-Hutchinson as its new Phoenix City Director. The expansion of these additional chapters brings the organization’s local engagement to 15 cities nationwide. City Directors work to implement the Walker’s Legacy mission in their local business communities through impactful in-person programming, organizational collaboration, and partnerships.
“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.”
Paula Johnson-Hutchinson has been a salon owner and educator for 28 years, as well as the owner of her own hair product line for 2 years. Paula holds a B.S. in Business from University of Phoenix. She is also the creator of ‘Stiletto Talks’ which is a podcast that provides safe spaces for women to share their experiences, goals, and expose them to collaborative opportunities.
“There is something powerful that happens when women connect the dots with their experiences and networks,” said Paula Johnson-Hutchinson, Phoenix City Director at Walker’s Legacy. “I am honored to do my part in being a catalyst for connectivity. I’m grateful to Natalie for her vision and to Gaybrielle for her attention to detail in selecting women that identify with a mission that has been shining a light for 10 years.”
“It has been an amazing experience building community with these dynamic women across the country. Adding an additional 6 City Directors to our Walker’s Legacy Leadership Family has been remarkable. I am so excited that we have the opportunity to expand our programming into 6 new communities this year reaching more multicultural women and serving as a resources pipeline to build local ecosystems of support,” said Gaybrielle LeAnn Gant, Director of Communities and Events leading the City Directors initiative. “I have absolutely loved getting to see each of our City Directors in action, meet the members of their communities, and watch them at work to advance the mission of Walker’s Legacy. This past month has been a true testament to the power of collaboration among multicultural women and sisterhood—I can’t think of a more fulfilling space.”
