“It was a celebration of women making a difference as well as a powerful lens from which we could see and experience the ISB’s longstanding mission of uniting communities and promoting understanding and inclusion.”
“The annual ISB Gala became the charging hub for the good doers of Atlanta.”
“An event by the ISB that amplified the important work by influential women from diverse backgrounds.”
We would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers, community leaders, ISB members, and all our stakeholders who attended the 2019 ISB Celebrating Women of Influence Gala. Thank you to our sponsors who made our gala possible, our amazing gala team Dorie Griggs, Abir Saberi and Judy Marx, and our volunteers who worked diligently.
The ISB honored Ms. Andrea Young, Ms. Duriya Farooqui, Chief Erika Shields, Dr. Houda Abadi, Ms. Jill Savitt, and Ms. Saleemah Abdul-Ghafur. These leaders demonstrate courage, leadership, and excellence.
At the gala, attendees experienced a lively reception, live entertainment, and a dynamic awards ceremony.
We are deeply thankful to everyone who joined us in honoring the awardees, and we are extremely grateful to all those who support the work of the ISB.
