Rochester Hills, MI (PRWEB) May 20, 2014 -- Lori Blaker, President/CEO of TTi Global received the AWC-Detroit Chapter’s Diamond Award at this year’s Matrix Awards ceremony held at the Dearborn Inn in Dearborn, Michigan. This award honors an individual or organization for improving conditions for women in the workplace or portraying women positively in the media. Blaker was selected for this award for her active involvement with women’s advocacy. Specifically Blaker was being honored for her mentoring activities with Women of Tomorrow and most recently for her role in launching the Metro Detroit Chapter of US National Committee for UN Women.
According to the organization, women are chosen not only for what they have done in their work and careers, but also what they have done in the community. As role models, they are an inspiration to all women who are trying to change the world for the better. Blaker joins a distinguished list of highly accomplished women. Past Matrix winners from other chapters include Meryl Streep, Tina Fey, Robin Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Martha Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg and Meredith Vieira and most recently, Queen Latifah.
Blaker was delighted to be honored at this event stating her reasons for starting the chapter, “We have established the Metro Detroit Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women to advocate and educate. I ask all of us to do more, say more and to be heard. We cannot rest until all women have opportunities for education, do not need to fear violence and are not used or abused by the men around them.” Blaker then thanked the Association of Women in Communication saying, “ This is a strong association of women extremely capable and able to communicate on behalf of women. I am so honored to be recognized by you!”
