The "100 Influential Georgia Muslims" will honor Georgia leaders who happen to be Muslims for their extraordinary impact.

"These men and women are leaders who transform vision into action, surmount challenges, break down barriers, and spark innovation," said Islamic Speakers Bureau founder and executive director Soumaya Khalifa in making the announcement. "They work to attain success for their organizations and communities, transform the landscape of business, nonprofits, or government, and demonstrate positive characteristics and inspire good will."

The "100 Influential Georgia Muslims" is an initiative of the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta.  The objectives of this initiative include:

  1. Recognizing individuals who have made a difference in our state.
  2. Acknowledging the contributions and impact of these individuals.
  3. Providing role model for the youth.

Tell us about the Georgia Muslim you know who positively challenges those around him/her and instills passion, conviction, and confidence in others. We are looking for men and women known for their abilities to lead and adapt, collaborate, inspire, and advance. Explain how they find creative ways to deal with obstacles and weave together key stakeholders.

Nominations will be accepted from anyone who has personal knowledge of the individual and can attest to his or her contribution to the State of Georgia. The deadline for submitting nominations has passed. Please keep watching for our list of honorees.
