On March 8 2017, the Alabama Women’s Commission hosted its fifth annual IMPACT: Celebrating Alabama Women event at the Capital City Club in Montgomery, Alabama. The event honors women from Alabama making an impact on their communities, state, and the nation. The Women’s Commission continues its focus on the issue of Promoting Financial Literacy among Alabama women. This year’s honorees are Martha Hawkins and Mary Margaret Caroll. These two women are successful businesswomen in the corporate and private sector. In addition to honoring these two women, the Commission is also excited to recognize the Alabama Department of Education for their initiatives to educate women in the area of financial literacy.
