The Dr. Maya Angelou Phenomenal Woman Award was created by YEG as a tribute to the inimitable matriarch of female empowerment, Dr. Maya Angelou, whose legacy of social justice and social consciousness continues to enlighten and empower people everywhere. This year, the Award recognizes two servant leaders whose individual and/or organization efforts best exemplify the advancement of the ideals and principles of social justice, spiritual growth, and holistic approach to healing in today’s world.
