Women Who Mean Business Nominations Close Friday

Posted: Sep 24, 2020 3:14 PM

United Way of Acadiana's Women United is proud to present the 2020 Women Who Mean Business Awards. While COVID-19
will undeniably change the way this year’s event is celebrated, United Way of Acadiana is eager to recognize accomplished
women who have made a difference in their community. The organization is hosting this event for the third year, continuing
Acadiana's time honored tradition.
Nominations are open for the 2020 awards event at www.unitedwayofacadiana.org/wwmb-2020.
This year, United Way of Acadiana is encouraging the community to consider nominating someone who has made a significant
impact during this pandemic, whether it be a worker on the front lines or an individual who has shined despite the challenges
of this unprecedented time. Nominees must be women who have made a significant impact in their workplaces and/or
communities through entrepreneurship, professionalism, civic engagement and community leadership. They must reside
and/or work in one of the four parishes United Way of Acadiana serves - Acadia, Lafayette, St. Martin, or Vermilion parishes.
Nominations are open through Friday, September 25, 2020. The awards ceremony will be held in the fall with details to follow.
“We are so thrilled to honor deserving women in our community again this year,” said President and CEO Carlee Alm-LaBar,
“This award always gives our community a chance to celebrate those women in our region who are advancing our community,
which in turn inspires more women. And there’s no doubt that this year, we have seen some amazing efforts by women in our
community.”
Women United chair Miriam Bourgeois added, “I am proud to live in a community that recognizes and honors extraordinary
women who are dedicated to improving our lives.”
Nominate a deserving woman today! If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Logan Pearce at
(337) 706-1214 or at logan.pearce@unitedwayofacadiana.org.
