Tribute to Legacy Leadership @ Virtual Luncheon Broadcast

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.
