We are excited to do a feature on each of the Changemaker honorees for the upcoming United for Change event on May 18!
What is a Changemaker?
Changemakers work with others to achieve results that can’t be achieved alone. Being a Changemaker requires passion, long-term commitment, generosity, hands-on involvement, and a shift from ideas to actions. The 2016 Changemaker Awards for Corporate and Civic Leadership are awarded to business and civic leaders or organizations that have worked with others to create measurable change in our community.
We hope you will join us in celebration of their
contributions at this fun and inspiring event!
