The Chicago Defender Women of Excellence Awards celebrates local African American women who inspire others through their vision and leadership, exceptional achievements, and participation in community service.
Women of Excellence honorees are women who exemplify extraordinary stature, poise, and grace. These women do it all while maintaining the delicate balance of filling the roles of helpmate, mother, teacher and professional.
The women who are chosen for this award are champions of our economic empowerment, the backbone of our religious and educational organizations, and driving forces in politics and community service.
