Our Mira Awards Recap!

At The Darden Group LLC we are still celebrating the Mira Awards! Our amazing founder Akilah Darden WON the Community Impact Award for an Individual at the 23rd Annual Mira Awards on April 23rd.

If you missed the moment, we invite you to watch Akilah’s acceptance speech on YouTube!
“The Mira Awards Judges were impressed by how Darden artfully leveraged technology to disrupt the industry and augment opportunities for under-represented groups, her passion for projecting success, leading by example and bringing others along with her on the journey to success,” TechPoint wrote in a story about the win. “They were inspired by Akilah’s ability to not just see the need for inclusion in the building trades, but to set out to solve the problem using tech-enabled resources that eliminated barriers and instilled a growth mindset that she, herself, modeled for the community.”

The technology used on the project was our Construction Management Masterclass (see below or visit to upskill our subcontractors and our IG live (@dardengroupllc) to show others what they can be in construction.  

We are so proud to work with Akilah and support her in continuing the work of The Darden Group to connect diverse talent to job opportunities in the skilled trades.

Later in the evening, Akilah got the chance to talk with Gerry Dick of Inside Indiana Business to share more of her story, passion, and vision, as well as discuss the community impact of the 38th and Sheridan project.  
Thank you to Cook Medical, Goodwill, our amazing network of diverse contractors and skilled talent, and the 46218 community who made this impact possible!
