Celebrating women who are making a difference
in our community.
The story of YWCA is one of women intentionally working together across categories of economic, generational, and racial differences to harness their collective power and combat problems impacting women and girls. Each year at our annual spring event, Salute to Women of Achievement, we celebrate dynamic women leaders throughout Georgia who embody our mission to eliminate racism and empower women by inducting them into our YWCA Academy of Women Achievers.
