“I’m excited to lead the work of Walker’s Legacy in the Greater Greenville area and look forward to the mission of this national organization permeating the local market in a meaningful way to impact the lives of multicultural women,” said Dr. Nika White, Greenville City Director at Walker’s Legacy.
“Walker’s Legacy understands that the power of our organization comes from the power of the community that we work hard to build every day,” said Natalie Madeira Cofield, Founder & CEO, “Extending our programming to local markets provides an opportunity to take our digital engagement off-line through meaningful programming and encourages the development of local ecosystems of support that are critical to the women we support. We look forward to working with Nika White to provide much needed programming, content and engagement to this often overlooked community of enterprising women.”
Dr. Nika White is one of ten (10) Walker’s Legacy City Directors selected from a national call which garnered a pool of more than 100 talented applicants. Selected leaders will aid in furthering the Walker’s Legacy mission in their local business communities through impactful in-person programming and local engagement.
The Walker’s Legacy Greenville launch will take place on January 23, 2020 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Memoirs Events and Catering. The launch will include a reception, ceremonious ribbon cutting, meet and greet with national team and executive fireside chat with Elizabeth Jende Chevalier, President and CEO with EJC MOVE. Elizabeth specializes in empowering women leaders to soar with confidence and inspiring companies to move forward knowing their competitive advantage is always a direct result when there is diversity and women leaders in key decision-making roles. Women in attendance will have the opportunity to tap into local resources and gain business contacts needed to take their career and business ventures into the new decade.
In recognition of March, Women’s History Month, national Walker’s Legacy City Directors will host Meet Your Match, a mentor matchmaking event. This national programming promotes direct networking, mentorship, and engagement with successful business leaders.
