We are honored to host several special events throughout the year. Additionally, we’re proud to join community partners to raise awareness and bring consciousness to issues surrounding racial justice and gender equality.
LUNAFEST is a film festival dedicated to championing women filmmakers and bringing women together in their communities hosted by #SoroptimistInternationalofPhoenix. Phoenix’s first prime time anchorwoman, Mary Jo West, and Phoenix Film Critics Society President and RightThisMinute Reporter, Gayle Bass, bring their passion and talents to LUNAFEST as this year’s co-emcees for the online event.
In 2021 we are very excited to celebrate Legacy Leadership, taking a look back over the past 26 years of Tribute to Leadership honorees.
YWCA’s Tribute to Leadership Luncheon and Awards event has been an annual celebration to recognize the accomplishments of leaders in our community who strive to improve the lives of women, girls, and people of color through leadership, advocacy, and community service.
We have re-imagined this year’s event as a virtual month-long celebration to reflect on 26 years of phenomenal Legacy honorees. This celebration will culminate with a virtual luncheon on March 31st, to come together to celebrate their continued legacy of leadership and commitment to racial and gender justice, and to raise funds that are critical for us to stay resilient and stay strong for those we serve.
Get connected with our mission and advance your racial justice journey by joining us for a virtual information session! Rising Leaders in Motion is our NEW group for emerging community leaders. The info session will highlight the group’s volunteer, networking, and personal development opportunities.
The more the merrier…feel free to bring your friends! We invite you to extend the invitation to any friends or co-workers who are interested in furthering their social justice journey and make an impact their community.
