“It is often said that if you want something done and done well, ask a busy woman,” says Atlanta Daily World Publisher Alexis Scott. “Because we all know this, we are honoring Atlanta’s ‘Women of Excellence’ at a special event this year.”
The Atlanta Daily World’s ‘Women of Excellence’ will be acknowledged and honored by their peers, family, friends and community leaders on Thursday, June 20 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 200 Peachtree St.
“This is the first of what we hope will become an annual event. It will celebrate 50 African American women who motivate and inspire others through their vision and leadership, exceptional achievements, and personal contribution to the community service,” said Scott.
Atlanta’s 2013 Women of Excellence will be celebrated with food, inspiration, and entertainment. Hosted by actress Kim Coles, ticket and table reservations are first come, first served. Honorees will include representatives of Atlanta’s most powerful and celebrated women in business, politics, religion, entertainment, education and community service.
‘Women of Excellence’ is a signature event of the newspaper group Real Times Media which also includes the Michigan Chronicle, Michigan FrontPage, New Pittsburgh Courier, the Tri-State Defender and the Chicago Defender. Collectively, Real Times Inc. is the nation’s largest African American owned and operated newspaper organization in the country.
“Real Times Inc. is dedicated to sustaining its presence as the leading source of African American related news, entertainment and lifestyle information and marketing services,” says Hiram Jackson, Real Times Media CEO. “It is the goal of the Atlanta Daily World and all of our papers to inform, inspire, and elevate the quality of life of its readers through dynamic print content, great web and digital presence, effective social media and impactful events.”
“Women are doing incredible things all across the country,” Jackson said. “We are pleased to add Atlanta to our list of cities that recognize their achievements.”
