Dallas Women’s Foundation held its Leadership Forum & Awards Dinner, presented by AT&T, on April 19 at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
The event featured keynote speaker, Nina Tassler, former chairman of CBS Entertainment and author of What I Told My Daughter. The Leadership Forum & Awards Dinner, co-chaired by Effie Dennison and Jan Sharry, celebrates trailblazers who are paving the way for other women to advance in leadership, and it elevates the importance of gender equity across all sectors.
The Foundation honored four women with the Maura Women Helping Women Award: Arcilia C. Acosta, Jocelyn D. Kidd, DDS, Cynthia Mickens Ross and Gail Turner. The organization also gave the Young Leader Award, presented by Capital One, to Vanessa Bouché, Ph.D. and Brooke López.
