10th Annual Celebration

Positively Powerful Woman Awards
Nearly 200 women and men celebrated, connected and were inspired!
In a friendly, welcoming and inclusive environment, corporate contributors, family members, business owners, educators, community, nonprofit and city leaders connected and collaborated, met and networked on June 10th at the 10th Annual Positively Powerful Woman’s Awards Gala Celebration.
The festivities were held at the beautiful, environmentally friendly travel destination, Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix, AZ. Elegant Dorrance Hall was transformed into a summer night time desert of turquoise, gold, and bronze for the Gala’s reception and dinner. True to its mission, the 10th Annual Positively Powerful Woman Awards Gala program celebrated the accomplishments of the 2017 Woman Award Recipients and Nonprofit Organization honorees in ways that empowered all people to live their dream.
Through Triad West’s Woman Awards, executive coaching, speaking, personal and professional development and women’s empowerment programs, we are changing lives and businesses for the better. Please save the date of June 9, 2018, for the 11th Annual Positively Powerful Woman Awards.
