Pi515, a youth- and community-based nonprofit in Des Moines, has announced the recipients of its 2023 Community Awards, which recognize corporations or organizations that demonstrate a consistent commitment to supporting youths and their academic journey with innovation and entrepreneurship through mentorship. The 2023 Community Awards will be awarded to John Deere ISG, Principal Financial Group, Meta and the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Centers. Connie Wimer, founder and chairman of Business Publications Corp., is the recipient of Pi515’s 2023 Legacy Award. “Connie Wimer has been an exceptional trailblazer and advocate for women in business. Her remarkable career is characterized by her commitment to breaking down barriers and empowering women and young people,” Pi515 Executive Director Nancy Mwirotsi said in a prepared statement. “Connie’s unwavering advocacy efforts have left a remarkable and enduring legacy for women, making a positive impact in our community.” John Pappajohn received the nonprofit’s Legacy Award in 2022. Recipients will be recognized on April 27 during the Day of Innovation event, which celebrates the conclusion of Pi515’s Girls Entrepreneurship Summit.
