For more than 10 years, this highly anticipated awards ceremony has recognized world-class women from the Atlanta area who have displayed the highest level of leadership, whose commitment to excellence is empowering, and whose achievements are unparalleled.
Special recognition will be given this year to Dr. Bernice King (The Civil Rights Legacy Award) and actress Victoria Rowell (The Community Crusader Award).
