The YWCA Women of Excellence Awards

A- A A+

At YWCA Northeast Kansas, we envision a world where women are empowered to strive toward success and become trailblazing leaders. The challenges and hardships of the past year have required more creativity and adaptability than ever before, but the YWCA and these Women of Excellence are radically reimagining what it takes to lead our community through the storm, to carry the torch for those around them, and to Ignite & Inspire us all toward a brighter future.

On Wednesday, September 15th, 2021, the 33rd annual YWCA Women of Excellence awards celebrated the outstanding contributions of women leaders in our community who get up and do the work. Women of Excellence is also our largest fundraiser of the year, and 2021 was no exception! Together, we raised over $29,000 to support the programs and services provided by YWCA Northeast Kansas. Thank you to everyone who was a part of it!
