The Links, Incorporated Celebrates
The Links, Incorporated, an international nonprofit service organization of professional women of color, recently hosted its 65th Anniversary in Washington, D.C. Events included a rededication and ribbon cutting ceremony of Links’ newly renovated National Headquarters, a state of the art LEED certified building. At a black-tie gala at the Marriott Wardman Park, for the first time the organization’s highest honor was bestowed upon an organization. The Links Medal was presented to Johnson Publishing Company Chairman Linda Johnson Rice on behalf of Ebony magazine. The recipient must have significantly impacted the lives and culture of African-Americans and other persons of African ancestry. Links brings together more than 12,000 distinguished women who are individual achievers and have made a difference in their communities and the world.
