The YWCA of Olympia will once again celebrate amazing women during our 20th Annual Women of Achievement Gala on November 6, 2014. Nominees will be considered based how she models her life in accordance with the YWCA of Olympia’s mission to empower women and eliminate racism through education, advocacy, service and leadership opportunities.
This year a special category is dedicated to women who are committed to the elimination of racism and promotion of racial justice. The YWCA’s commitment to racial justice is one of the common threads that unites YWCAs across the country. Eliminating racism is one of the two central principles of the YWCA mission, along with the empowerment of women. And, at the core of the YWCA’s work is the recognition that not all women, or all people, are treated equally. For this reason, the YWCA of Olympia seeks to honor a South Sound woman who works towards racial justice.
