LEADERSHIP FORUM & AWARDS DINNER

Location: The Omni Dallas


 

Join us in elevating and celebrating the voice of women leaders. Our annual Leadership Forum & Awards dinner brings notable, high profile leaders together for engaging conversations and presentations, including the award of the Maura Women Helping Women and Young Leader Awards to exemplary trailblazers in our community.

  • The Maura Women Helping Women Award honors women who have led the way in advancing equity, economic security and leadership for women and girls.
  • The Young Leader Award recognizes breakthrough leadership exhibited by a woman under the age of 40 who is achieving success in a field, initiative or sector, and creating a path of opportunity for other women to follow.

Since we began stewarding the event in 2013, it has raised $1.8 million to support Leadership programs for women and girls.

Nominations for the 2019 Leadership Awards open November 8, 2018.
