LISA WISE AND FLOCK DC NAMED GOLD WINNERS IN
19th ANNUAL STEVIE® AWARDS FOR WOMEN IN BUSINESS
Women Around the World Recognized at Event in Las Vegas
Washington, DC – November 12, 2022 – Flock DC has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in both the Community Involvement Program of the Year category and the Social Change Maker- Race category in the 19th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run– worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners last night during a gala event attended by nominees and their guests at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event was broadcast via Livestream.
More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year. Flock DC won in the 'Community Involvement Program of the Year' category and lisa wise won in the 'Social Change Maker-Race' category.
“Flock is thrilled to receive this recognition, specifically for the work of our birdSEED Foundation. lisa has uniquely built Flock on the principles of servant leadership and conscious capitalism, creating a values-based company that offers a new model in a world that will increasingly depend on companies to contribute to stronger, more sustainable communities. By creating birdSEED, which awards down payment grants to first-time, BIPOC homebuyers, we hope to inspire other businesses, especially those in industries that have profited off discriminatory policies, to do the same. The ultimate goal: expand our program to the national level while inspiring not only donations but community action to implement housing justice.”
-Lydia La Motta, Director of Engagement
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries. This year’s Stevie Awards for Women in Business was complemented by the fourth edition of the Women|Future Conference, a three-day educational and networking event held virtually.

We are gratified by how meaningful it is to women to win a Stevie Award, and how impactful it can be on the futures of their careers and their organizations.
