STATE ATTORNEY SELECTED FOR MUJERES GIVING BACK AWARD


Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has been selected by The Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade for their Mujeres Giving Back 2015 Award in the Talent category.

“I am greatly honored to be recognized by The Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade for this amazing award. The Women’s Fund has long recognized that fostering community enrichment starts with recognizing and fostering the good works done locally by individual women. What we give back to our community enriches us all,” commented State Attorney Fernandez Rundle.

This is the second year that The Women’s Fund has selected a group of women to highlight the philanthropic impact of Hispanic women leaders in Miami-Dade County. The candidates are nominated by South Florida residents and selected by an independent judging panel of community leaders. The winners are women who give back to our community through their time, talent or treasure. Mujeres Giving Back recognizes women who have been leaders in leveraging their power and influence to give back to their community.

Founded in 1993, The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade empowers women and girls through advocacy and funding for innovative initiatives that build equality, foster social change and create community partners.
 
State Attorney Fernandez Rundle and her fellow nominees will be honored at a Recognition Luncheon hosted by The Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade on Friday, November 6, 2015, at Jungle Island.
