Now at the Hard Rock Casino for the first time ever, our 45th annual Career Women of Achievement Luncheon is coming this May. This year’s honorees are trailblazers in their fields, each with diverse contributions to our community. We’ll celebrate them while raising funds for life-saving YWCA programs like our Domestic Violence Shelters, which serve nearly 500 adults and children each year with many more on their nightly waitlists.

We’re ready to ignite change and be trailblazers for our collective mission.

Are you with us?
