Tahirih Justice Center announced today that its Founder and Executive Director, Layli Miller-Muro, will be recognized as one of Greater Washington’s top female leaders with a Washington SmartCEO 2010 BRAVA! Women Business Achievement Award.
This award recognizes 25 female executives who are exemplary leaders within their companies and communities at large. SmartCEO describes these women as individuals who are “encouraging their staffs and peers to become more involved in giving back to those in need, mentoring fellow leaders, and strategically setting up their organizations for tremendous growth and success.”
Miller-Muro is honored to receive the award, stating, “The women receiving 2010 BRAVA! Awards are a truly accomplished group and I am honored to be counted among their number.”
The BRAVA! winners are profiled in the July issue of SmartCEO, which is read by more than 30,000 business owners in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. Each winner is also featured in the digital edition of the magazine. The winners are selected by an independent panel of business leaders.
“BRAVA! Women Business Achievement award recipients are not only selected and honored for their success in growing a company, but also for demonstrating leadership throughout the Greater Washington community. This unique combination of attributes is fit to be admired by any CEO. We are honored to recognize Layli Miller-Muro as one of Greater Washington’s most influential leaders,” said Jaime Park, publisher of Washington SmartCEO.
The twenty-five award recipients of the fourth annual BRAVA! Awards will celebrate at SmartCEO’s BRAVA! Awards event on Wednesday, July 21, 2010, from 6-8:30 p.m. at The Sphinx Club at Franklin Square, 1315 K St. NW, Washington, DC 20005.
