Recognizing ability, advocacy, access and achievements since 1993, the Mayor’s Commission on Disability Issues and the city of Phoenix are proud sponsors of the Disability Awards and Recognition Event (D.A.R.E.). 

The event honors exceptional individuals with disabilities, employers of individuals with disabilities and others that have shown dedication to the access and functional needs community. 

The ceremony also recognizes commitment to improving the quality of life for all residents and visitors of Phoenix. It is our hope that this annual event will inspire others to emulate the honorees and provide a fully accessible Phoenix for everyone. We invite you to be a part of this special event.​​


2nd Annual Women Empowering Women Award

The Inaugural Women Empowering Women Award was established in 2015 by the Phoenix Women’s Commission, through the inspiration of national trailblazer Lilly Ledbetter and the passage of the Equal Pay Act.
The Women Empowering Women Award serves to distinguish and honor women who are making significant contributions within our community.   The recipient uses their precious time, talent and energy to enrich the lives of other women within our neighborhoods and the City at large.​ To learn more or to nominate, click here​.  ​
