Join Women's Network Leadership Institute and Greater Akron Chamber for the annual Women of Achievement Awards. During this event, all award winners will be featured, and the 2021 Woman of Achievement honoree will join a panel of greater Akron trailblazers to discuss their journeys titled: 
Defining Moments: How their stories were written
They will share their perspectives on leadership, strategy, and insights on key factors leading to their personal and professional growth. It will include insight into their individual narratives, unique opportunities, and their tolerance for risk. This panel will inspire the audience while sharing both the privileges and weight of being a first, and often “an only”.
