At a ceremony tonight at the Cobb Galleria Centre, InfoMart was presented with the YWCA Kathryn Woods Racial Justice Award. The YWCA of Northwest Georgia presents this award to “individuals and organizations who work to erase racism and promote unity for people of all backgrounds.” The award is presented during the organization’s annual Tribute to Women of Achievement program.
Tammy Cohen, president and chair, accepted the award on behalf of InfoMart from Juanita Carmichael, a YWCA of Northwest Georgia board member.
“Small and mid-sized companies make up 99% of all businesses in Georgia. InfoMart’s endeavors set the example to small and mid-sized organizations that all corporations should have a responsibility towards racial justice and gender inclusion.
