32nd Annual Women of Excellence Awards: A Leadership Event to benefit YWCA Northeast Kansas: Celebrating Women of Excellence in the greater Topeka community. In 2020, the event looked a little different as we transition from a daytime luncheon to an evening virtual event, but our mission remained the same: honoring the contributions of women in our community who get up and do the work. Together, we are Equal. Powerful. UNSTOPPABLE. You can watch the replay here, see event photos here, and donate here.
