The Academy of Women Leaders created the Tribute to Women of Achievement event to honor women who exemplify the qualities of leadership, achievement, dedication and generosity. At this annual, one individual will be named Woman of the Year; this title is a recognition of their distinct leadership style as well as their expertise in balancing business, community and family. Past winners have come from all walks of life with diverse career paths and ethnic backgrounds. They have helped and mentored one another selflessly in an effort to ensure that each one endures as a strong contributor to the Academy of Women Leaders. Along with liveSAFE Resources, the Tribute to Women of Achievement presents these bold and inspiring women with an exclusive opportunity to step up their commitment to creating a better world for all.
To date, over 300 female community leaders in the area have been honored with this award. The Academy takes nominations for Woman of the Year at any time. Any worthy woman from Cobb, Cherokee or Paulding counties is eligible to receive this honor.
Governor Nathan Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal will serve as our honorary co-chairs, and Tricia and Mike Pridemore will be serving as co-chairs for the 2017 Tribute to Women of Achievement.
