Texas Women’s Foundation President/CEO Miki Woodard is looking for a few great women. No, it’s not a draft call. Rather Texas Women’s Foundation for the past 44 years has “recognized women who have led the way in improving lives for women and girls in Texas.”
According to Miki, “We want to celebrate and elevate the voices of women leaders across Texas through our Maura Women Helping Women and Young Leader awards.”
Nominations may be submitted for the Maura Women Helping Women Award that fit the following criteria :
- Utilize their role in leadership to advance opportunities to serve the unique needs of women and girls;
- Has spent an extended period of time in service helping women and girls;
- Former or current resident of Texas; and
- Must be 40 years of age and older.
For the upcoming generation, the Young Leaders Award was established to “recognize breakthrough leadership exhibited by a Texan between the ages of 19 and 39,” plus the following requirements:
- Achieving success in a field, initiative or sector;
- Creating a path of opportunity for others to follow; and
- Former or current resident of Texas.
Miki added, “Help us recognize the great work of someone you know who is working to advance the lives of women and/or girls by nominating them for one — or both — of the Leadership Awards.”
Nominations for the Maura Award and the Young Leader Award must be submitted here by Monday, October 31.
The awardees will be honored at the Texas Women’s Foundation’s Leadership Forum and Awards Celebration on Thursday, April 27, at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
