Waffiyyah Murray with her ‘Emerging Leader’ Award at the Bike Summit

Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia Education Program Manager Waffiyyah Murray last night won the Bicycle Friendly Emerging Leader Award at the National Bike Summit in Washington D.C.

Murray, a staffer at the Bicycle Coalition for three years, formerly ran the Safe Routes Philly program, and currently leads the Better Bike Share Team.

The Emerging Leader Award is a special accolade for a person who is focused on the bicycling movement and has demonstrated exceptional and inspiring bicycle advocacy. Nominees have demonstrated leadership and have shown great potential to continue leading in the bicycling movement.

In Murray’s role as Education Program Manager, she works with advocates and community leaders throughout Philadelphia to introduce bike sharing as a form of public transportation throughout Philadelphia.

She works with the Office of Transportation and Utilities in her work, and works alongside Brenda Hernandez and Azephra Hamilton, who make up the rest of the Better Bike Share Team.

Additionally, Waffiyyah co-hosts the Bicycle Coalition’s podcast.

We are extremely proud of Murray for her well-deserved award at this year’s Bike Summit, and can only assume this is the first of many for her.
