Diversity Efforts Land Darden ‘Community Impact’ Award

In less than two years, The Darden Group LLC has made a significant impact in Indiana. The executive construction management company founded by President Akilah Darden helped achieve 100% diverse participation in the construction of the recently-opened, $15 million manufacturing facility in Indianapolis for Bloomington-based Cook Medical and Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana. That effort along with Darden’s use to technology to achieve it earned her the Community Impact Award for an individual at this year’s TechPoint Mira Awards.
