The PathMaker Award is symbolic of the need to have a path that others can follow. It represents the desire to open up new and different places that few have been but more are able to get there because someone else created a path. As an organization focused on the future of girls and women, EmpowHer Institute encourages, inspires and celebrates opportunities to provide a path to underprivileged teens and young women to see the possibilities.
We recognize women in our community who exemplify the characteristics of a PathMaker, one who blazes a path for others to follow and encourage and inspire along the way. Our selected honorees are striking examples of leaders who have been there first and created a better place for those who came after them.
