Nike Award
Women of excellence deserve to be recognized specifically those in business locally and making an impact in their community by giving back and volunteering. The Nike (our business symbol) represents – progress, strength, freedom, and triumphs while facing adversity – including prejudice and other limitations.

Help Jackson Business and Professional Women honor the great business women in this community.
