The National Association of Women Business Owners-Indianapolis (NAWBO-Indy) has honored Amie Peele Carter of Baker & Daniels LLP with the Indianapolis Choice award in recognition of her advocacy for the organization and Indiana's women business owners.
One of NAWBO-Indy's four Visionary Awards, the Indianapolis Choice award recognizes a person who has enabled women business owners to achieve their potential, has improved the business climate for women, and has fulfilled the potential of her economic and social contributions to Indiana. Carter was selected based on her contributions to organizations that advance women as well as her character, openness and willingness to go above and beyond for friends, colleagues and acquaintances.
In addition to volunteering with NAWBO-Indy in various capacities, Carter is dedicated to a number of other civic and professional organizations that support women. She serves as a board member for P.E.O.'s Chapter DE, a philanthropic organization that celebrates the advancement of women and provides educational funding for women. Formerly, she served on the boards of the Midwest Regional Conference for Women in the Law, the Vivian Smith Teen Parenting Program and Ovar'Coming Together. Carter recently co-founded Sports Circle Indy, a nonprofit networking organization for Indianapolis sports professionals.
NAWBO-Indy presented the Visionary Awards at its Eighth Annual Awards Luncheon on Dec. 15, 2011, at the JW Marriott. The theme of the 2011 luncheon was Celebrating Women: Our Legacy. The event showcased the strong ties between the growth of NAWBO-Indy and the growth of Indianapolis as a national sports capital and featured Jackie Joyner-Kersee, an Olympic track and field gold medalist and one of the most decorated female athletes of all time, as the Legacy Spotlight Speaker.
A partner at Baker & Daniels, Carter practices intellectual property, sports and entertainment law. Her clients range from entrepreneurs to international organizations, and she devotes much of her time to representing artists, musicians and sports organizations. She concentrates her practice in trademarks, copyrights, e-commerce, branding, licensing, social media and publishing.
