The Power of One Dedicated Woman honors deserving women who inspire others to be part of community work and build stronger neighborhoods. The invitation-only annual event recognizes women who set an example of what one woman can do to make a difference in the lives of others.
Do you know a woman who is changing Detroit neighborhoods? A woman who gives of herself for the greater good? A woman whose love and support has helped her community? A friend, neighbor or family member who stands out from others while never seeking attention for herself?
These women deserve recognition precisely because they did not ask for it. Though not often in the limelight, they are the ones who inspire. It’s time to honor the women who have created a stir, inspired change, and given us a reason to hope for a better future.
