The Anne Mackie Award

The annual NC Women United Anne Mackie Award recognizes a lifetime contribution to advocacy on behalf of women. It was established in 2008 to recognize in a public forum the long-term commitment and work of Anne Mackie who 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.
