UnBought & UnBossed Award Nominations - Now Open
Girls Inc. of Chattanooga’s UnBought & UnBossed awards proudly honors women in the greater Chattanooga area who, through their career achievements and community leadership, have improved the lives of girls and women. The strongest nominees have been trailblazers in their careers, made an impact through exceptional community service, and/or volunteered with girls to make a difference in their lives.
The UnBought & UnBossed awards began in 2005 to celebrate local female role models who embody the ideals of former U.S. Representative Shirley Chisholm, who was described as a woman who was "determined, intelligent, and audacious in her beliefs." Chisholm was the first black woman to serve in congress and run for president. Our event is named after the phrase coined by Chisholm who declared herself "unbought and unbossed."
