The Leading Light Awards take place Oct. 6, 2016 at Indiana Roof Ballroom, where STEM scholarships will also be awarded.

TriVersity, a commercial construction firm based in Cincinnati, hired Darden in 2015 as project executive. Darden, a mother of four, is active in the Indianapolis community, where she mentors with ACE Mentoring at North Central High School. She also served as a panelist for the Women in Green Luncheon and was recognized nationally in the 40 Under 40 Class of 2015 from Building Design and Construction Magazine.

“Investing in others and setting the example for selfless sacrifice is something Akilah does without hesitation or second thought,” said David Fryman, a fellow ACE mentor and national director of dealer and business development for Advanced Cabinet Solutions, in his nomination letter for Darden. “She was a key component in helping seven North Central students receive more than $20,000 in scholarships.”

Darden was recognized among many other Indianapolis business leaders from Rolls-Royce, Angie’s List, Lilly Research Labs and Dow AgroSciences.

The Leading Light Awards recognize women of achievement in Indiana who have set an example to others by demonstrating expertise, professionalism, leadership, service, courage and tenacity in pursuing their chosen science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) career.
