Thank you for supporting the 34th Annual Women of Excellence Awards!

At YWCA Northeast Kansas, we envision a world where women are empowered to strive toward success and become trailblazing leaders. And so, we uplift and celebrate the outstanding contributions of women leaders in our community who get up and do the work.

On September 10th, 2022, hundreds of friends, supporters, and sponsors came together in downtown Topeka (and virtually on Swell!) to honor 39 incredible women leaders who are building a stronger future for our community – and raised over $51,000 dollars for the services and programs at YWCA Northeast Kansas that serve thousands of families in the Topeka area each year!

Whether you missed it live, or just want to relive the celebration, we welcome you to view the recorded awards program below.
