Leadership Character Awards

LCA was established in 2003.  The purpose of the Leadership Character Awards remains constant – to recognize leaders who display character, based on alignment with TLG’s Leadership Character Model.

2020 was the first year that net proceeds from the event were directed to both the Leadership Character Youth Coalition, which is currently in the early stages of formation, as well as to, and to support the Metro Atlanta Chamber’s education initiatives.

The Leadership Character Youth Coalition, through and with partners, will instill the values represented in the Turknett’s Leadership Character Model in youth across the world, thus multiplying the numbers of youth who will grow into adulthood with a set of fundamental values to live by and to share with others. The Coalition will not only call attention to the principles of leadership character while rewarding one or more deserving youth, but will also create a lasting legacy to Bob and Lyn Turknett who for over 31 years have spread the leadership character message while impacting thousands of people, teams, and companies through their work.

The Metro Atlanta Chamber supports a broad set of initiatives aimed at educational excellence and expanded workforce opportunities for our region including :

  • Learn4Life where MAC partners with local businesses, higher education institutions and philanthropic organizations to work directly with eight (8) school districts in and around Atlanta.
  • MAC’s public policy team engages with a variety of stakeholders, including legislators and agency professionals, to expand educational access and opportunity across the birth-to-five, k-12, higher education and workforce development.
  • ChooseATL After 5 program each year brings together hundreds of interns from the across the region to network together systems.
  • OpportunityATL is a MAC-led initiative that puts out-of-school, out-of-work young people, between the ages of 16 and 24, directly in touch with service providers and employers who can help them complete their education or find gainful employment while offering support services before, during and after their search.
