Career Mastered Announced 2020 National Diversity Leadership Awards

Outstanding Diversity Advocates and Achievers Who Lead By Example

Career Mastered 2020 National Diversity Leadership Awards

Linwick & Associates announced that the Career Mastered 2020 National Diversity Leadership Awards will be presented during the Career Mastered National Business Diversity Summit & Women’s Leadership Awards, which will be held during Women’s History Month on Friday, March 20, 2020, at Westin Hiltons Head Spa & Resort. 

Outstanding women leaders from across the nation will be honored for their excellent example of diversity and inclusion advocacy and leadership. The award represents “Visionary Women Who Lead By Example” and who have made significant contributions to diversity and inclusion. These leaders are an example of excellence to others.

This March, Women’s History Month National Alliance will celebrate 40 years of honoring women. In alignment with this lead, Career Mastered will celebrate its sixth Annual Diversity Business Summit & Woman’s History Leadership Awards, March 18-20, 2020.  

The topic of women’s leadership has been part of a national and global conversation over the past couple of years. There is a power in forming a more perfect union to hear women’s stories, individually and collectively. Knowing women’s achievements, challenges and stereotypes upend social assumptions about who women are and what women can accomplish today. 

This program is sponsored by Linwick & Associates, LLC (LWA) a global human resources consulting firm with offices in the metropolitan cities of Detroit, Michigan and Charlotte, North Carolina, and the parent company of Career Mastered Magazine. 

Visionary Women Who Lead By Example is the 2020 Theme of the Summit, routinely attracting a sell-out crowd. “We are thrilled to honor and highlight truly remarkable diversity advocates and inspiring leaders who are exceptionally strong role models of what a woman can accomplish,” said Dr. Lisa J. Lindsay Wicker, President & CEO, Linwick & Associates.
