The YWCA of Riverside County cordially invites you to our 30th Annual Women of Achievement Awards & Luncheon on Friday, September 19, 2014 at the Riverside Convention Center.
The Woman of Achievement and the Emerging Leader awards honor women in the community who exemplify the ideals of the YWCA organizational mission. Through these awards, the YWCA recognizes exceptional women who serve as role models by making noteworthy contributions to the civic, economic and cultural life in Riverside County. To be considered, nominees must live and/or work in Riverside County.
The Women of Achievement Awards Luncheon is a signature fundraiser for the YWCA of Riverside County, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Professional Women’s Academy as well as other programs and services provided by the YWCA. The Professional Women’s Academy is a three-track program providing educational, networking and mentoring opportunities for girls graduating high school and pursuing a college education, for young women in college trying to identify a career path, and for women returning to the workforce after an extended period of absence.
When & Where
YWCA of Riverside County
Since 1906, the YWCA of Riverside County has worked to help women grow physically, intellectually and spiritually. Sharing in the national mission, the YWCA of Riverside County strives to develop programs that improve the quality of life for women and their families throughout Riverside County.
They YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2 million members in 300 local associations in the United States. More important than the numbers, is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders and advocate for women’s rights and civil rights in Congress.
Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They come for job training and career counseling. They come for child care. They come for health and fitness. They come for a variety of reasons, but they come…and they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills and stronger lives.
