2020 Women of Achievement AWARDS Celebration

Each year, YWCA Spokane celebrates high achieving women in the community. Established with the goal of increasing community awareness and appreciation for the diverse contributions of women leaders in Spokane, this luncheon has honored more than 255 women in the region.

A Community Coming Together To Impact Lasting Change

The Women of Achievement awards has evolved into YWCA Spokane’s largest fundraising event, sponsored by more than 50 companies and organizations each year, and is one of the area’s most prestigious award recognition events for women.

Over 1200 friends and supporters who believe in YWCA Spokane’s dedication to eliminating racism, empowering women, standing up for social justice, helping families, and strengthening communities come together to invest in the safety, hope, and healing of those served by YWCA’s critical programs.

Proceeds raised by this important event benefit YWCA Spokane’s services for domestic violence victims and their children, including emergency shelter, counseling, legal services, job readiness, child care, and Pre-K programs for low-income children.

Our 2019 Awards Luncheon Was A Great Success!

YWCA Spokane’s 37th annual Women of Achievement Impact Luncheon was truly a memorable event. Each year’s luncheon is designed to express gratitude for the outstanding contributions of the nominated award honorees, provide inspiration to the attendees, and raise critical awareness about domestic abuse in our community. The Women of Achievement Luncheon is YWCA Spokane’s largest and most important fundraiser of the year. In 2019, we had a record-breaking number of attendees join us as we also raised a record-breaking amount!  Take a look at the recap and photos from the event.
