YWCA Lancaster's second event

Nominations accepted for annual honor

Posted

Nominations are being accepted through July 20, for the 2nd Annual Women of Achievement Luncheon.

YWCA Lancaster hosts the luncheon, now in its second year, during which six women in the community will be recognized for their efforts to raise money and awareness for YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.

The Women of Achievement event celebrates women who have demonstrated qualities of leadership and excellence in their personal and professional endeavors, whether or not they hold a prominent position.

Nominees are evaluated by an independent committee and the top six nominees who best match the criteria are chosen and will be honored at the luncheon which will be held on Friday, Nov. 2, at the Inn at Leola Village.

The luncheon will also feature keynote speaker Dr. Wendy Osefo, a Nigerian-American television personality and a highly sought-after progressive political commentator and strategist. Dr. Osefo is a professor of education at The Johns Hopkins University, contributor at “The Hill,” and the founder and CEO of The 1954 Equity Project, LLC.
