The Atlanta Women’s Foundation Announces 2022 Class of Inspire Atlanta

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022

The Atlanta Women’s Foundation announces the 2022 class of Inspire Atlanta, an exclusive community impact program and fundraising campaign that supports The Atlanta Women’s Foundation. The 2022 class is comprised of 26 women representing 22 companies from across metro Atlanta. Inspire Atlanta is celebrating its fifth anniversary. To date, the program has graduated 143 women who raised over $1 million to support AWF’s grantmaking. 

“To be launching the fifth class of Inspire Atlanta is an incredible achievement,” said Kari B. Love, AWF’s CEO, “Over the last five years, this program has developed beyond our expectations and shows how dedicated women in metro Atlanta are to achieving lasting, positive change in our community.”  

The Inspire Atlanta Program develops women personally, professionally, and philanthropically. During the five-month program, participants will develop their talents to garner support that affects real change in the community; learn about critical issues facing women and girls in the area; explore their core values and chart their unique leadership path; build a network of fellow female leaders and doers; and champion a fundraising campaign in support of the Atlanta Women’s Foundation.

As the only public foundation in Georgia dedicated solely to women and girls, it is AWF’s responsibility to prepare women to be thoughtful, well-informed, philanthropic leaders who understand the unique issues women and girls face locally. Through the Inspire Atlanta initiative, AWF is training women to develop or enhance the skills needed to empower and develop not only themselves, but their communities as well.2022 Class of Inspire Atlanta
