Women of Achievement Awards
Each year, YWCA Spokane celebrates high achieving women in the community through this awards celebration. Established with the goal of increasing community awareness and appreciation for the diverse contributions of women leaders in Spokane, our Women of Achievement awards luncheon has honored more than 260 women in the region.
This awards luncheon has evolved into YWCA Spokane’s largest fundraising event. Sponsored by more than 50 companies and organizations each year, it has become one of the area’s most prestigious award recognition events for women.
