PLANO, Texas – May 22, 2013

Latin leaders and professionals gathered at the 8th Annual Women of ALPFA Conference held at the Four Season’s in Las Colinas, Texas on May 11. The highlight of the event was the Latina Achievement Awards, which is given to trailblazers in the Dallas/Fort Worth community whose achievements are inspirational to other Latina professionals.

Claudia Mirza, CEO of Akorbi, received the award for her dedication to giving back to the community, as well as her impressive success in building a multi-million dollar company that caters to corporate and government clients around the world, including federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. During the last decade, Mirza’s tireless entrepreneurial spirit has led Akorbi’s evolution from a language translation company to a comprehensive provider of global localization solutions.

According to Vince Chapa, President of ALPFA, “Claudia Mirza has gone through a tremendous amount of hard work to get her company to the level that it is now recognized. Our recognition hopefully allows her to take a deep breath and set her sights on what is yet to be accomplished.”

Over the years, Mirza’s success and commitment to her community have been recognized with numerous honors and awards, including:  the Dallas Business Journal’s “Women in Business” award, a “Community Hero” nomination from the Metroplex Technology Business Council, the “Woman-Owned Business Enterprise of the Year” award by the North Texas Regional Certification Agency, the Fort Worth Mayor’s “Entrepreneur Award” and the “Micro-entrepreneur of the Year” award by Wachovia and ACCION Texas.
