About this Event

All around us, women are making a difference and achieving significant professional and community accomplishments. Increasingly, women are being recognized as catalysts for change and thought leaders in nearly every profession and community capacity.

The Catalyst Awards, a premier event of the Prince George’s County Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., seeks to recognize and celebrate the vibrant and dynamic female achievers in our local area and those making a national impact. The Catalyst Awards will be held at the College Park Marriott Hotel, College Park, Maryland on April 5, 2019 .

Our featured guest speaker is Judy Smith, renowned crisis management expert, lawyer and author whose work in crisis management was the inspiration for the hit television series, Scandal.

We are also excited to welcome special guests, Danielle Brown, the 26th National President of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated and the Honorable Angela Alsobrooks, the County Executive of Prince George's County.

In addition to highlighting these "movers and shakers," the doors will open at 11:00 am to allow attendees to enjoy jazz and view art presented by students from the Prince George's County School system, with the luncheon beginning at 12:00 pm.

Awards will be presented in the following categories:
