Recognizing the Change in the World
One of the most important member benefits at OnBoard is the public recognition of achievement in the advancement of the mission of the organization.
OnBoard honors and celebrates achievement with two different awards – The Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award and the Executive Leadership Honor Roll. Both awards are intended to pay tribute to the winners, present role models and provide inspiration to others.
Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award
The Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award, started in 2003, is awarded to the woman board member who has served as an outstanding role model for advancing the mission of increasing the number of women in executive leadership and on corporate boards.
The award is named in honor of Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans, one of the first women to serve as a director of a major American corporation. In 1934 she was appointed to the board of directors of The Coca-Cola Company, a position she held for nearly 20 years. More on the award.
