Pathfinder Award

Established in 2004, the Pathfinder Award is bestowed annually on a Tulsan (or Tulsans) for a lifetime of commitment to our community. The Pathfinder Award dinner is the Tulsa League’s largest annual fundraiser.

Tulsa has been and continues to be fortunate in having a depth of women and men with courage and civic commitment who lend their skills and knowledge and blaze trails for the benefit of the wider community, state and nation. Their presence has enriched us all by opening doors for the disenfranchised and furthering the mission and work of the LWW of Metropolitan Tulsa by informing, empowering, and advocating a direction. They share common traits: civic pride, a
giving spirit, the courage of their convictions, a sense of the future and the direction a path might take. They have been the pathfinders.
