Nominate an Outstanding Woman of Color 50+

AARP North Carolina and the Triangle Older Women’s League are joining together to recognize outstanding women of color age 50-plus in Wake County.

Nominations are now being solicited, and the names of women selected for recognition will be announced on Oct. 12 at a “Celebrating Women of Color Making a Difference in Wake County” event at Raleigh’s Poplar Springs Christian Church.

The awards actively support and celebrate the mission of both AARP and the Older Women’s League in honoring women leaders of color age 50-plus. Many such leaders have devoted extraordinary time and energy to their community in a meaningful way, and citizens are asked to nominate such a woman leader who has been an inspiration in their life.

Nominees should meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative
  • Provide valuable service to improve the quality of life for others in their community
  • Assist women in reaching their full leadership potential

Nominations must be submitted using the nomination form.

You may include additional pages of supporting documentation, although the total application is not to exceed four pages. The information submitted should support the award criteria of achievement and service. For more information or clarification, contact Debra Tyler-Horton at or at 919-508-0295.

A planning committee made up of a diverse group of leaders from across the community will screen all nominations and will contact each of the nominees for any additional information they may wish to provide in support of the nomination.

The deadline for submissions is Sept. 24. Completed nomination forms should be emailed to Debra Tyler-Horton at

AARP hopes you will nominate an outstanding woman of color age 50-plus who has made a difference in your life.
