Anne Mackie founded the North Carolina Women’s Legislative Agenda, the precursor of NC Women United, and was instrumental in the creation and development of its signature project, the Women’s Agenda Assemblies. NC Women United was pleased to be able to present the inaugural award to Anne Mackie in recognition of her years of service.
