Triad-based Diversity Woman magazine presented six Mosaic Woman Awards during its Leadership Conference earlier this month in Buena Vista, Fla.

“The Future is Now for Women” was the conference’s theme and hundreds of women executives and leaders attended to hear from the likes of author Dr. Robin Smith and international business exec Dr. Gloria Herndon, who paid tribute to her cousin, Dr. Maya Angelou.



“The greatest reward for me,” said Sheila Robinson, conference founder, publisher and CEO of Diversity Woman Media, “is to hear attendees share their success stories about how they are transformed as a result of the speakers, workshops and conference experience.  In order for us to impact the drastic women’s leadership gap, it is crucial that we transform women into extraordinary leaders.”
Jackie Guerra, who was the first Latina to star in a network sitcom (“First Time Out”), gave the keynote address and was presented with the Mosaic Woman Trailblazer Award.

The Mosaic Woman Legend Award was presented to Phylicia Rashad, a Tony winner best known for playing Claire Huxatable on “The Cosby Show.” The Mosaic Woman Leadership Award went to Dr. Annie Mckee, senior fellow and director of the University of Pennsylvania School of Education and chief learning officer executive of the doctoral program.

The Mosaic Woman Lifetime Achievement Award went to Judge Glenda Hatchett, founder and CEO of Great Day Productions and a legal contributor to national news outlets like CNN, HLN and Fox.

The Mosaic Woman Pioneer Award was presented to Bonnie St. John, who became the first African-American ever to win Olympic medals in ski racing at the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria.
