03/08/2017 -16th Annual Global Leadership Awards

Since 2002, Vital Voices has shined a spotlight on women who innovate, taking the road less traveled through the Global Leadership Awards. Now more than ever, our world needs to join with them, and to invest in the women leaders who are working toward transformational change. On International Women’s Day, the D.C. Council attended the 2017 Global Leadership Awards to recognize these extraordinary women. The 2017 honorees are building bridges across lines that divide. This year’s honorees include Majesty Queen Rania al Abdullah of Jordan, Senior Chief Theresa Kachindamoto, ElsaMarie D’Silva, Nadia Bushnaq, and Ariela Suster.
