Chattanooga, TN — (January 20, 2017) – Urban Voice newsmagazine is accepting nominations for the inaugural POWER50 Awards designed to recognize outstanding black leaders and professionals in East Tennessee. We are looking for East Tennessee’s most inspiring, innovative and influential leaders.
Do you or someone you know have what it takes? Its time to nominate them for the POWER50.
A POWER50 leader has provided inspiration, civic leadership, innovation, mentoring, and more. They are business minded professionals or they may be a social entrepreneur, a nonprofit leader, or a millennial mover and shaker. They are powerful and most importantly they embody the qualities that continue to help transform the quality of life in East Tennessee.
The nomination process consists of a 3-month period where nominations are solicited and submitted through the Urban Voice web portal. Once the nominations are clos, they will be distributed to our external judging panel, which consists of industry experts across several professional platforms.
The inaugural POWER50 Awards recipients will be announced and recognized in the Spring 2017.
