Women of Achievement

Each year the YWCA Woman of Achievement Award is presented to a select group of Northeast Ohio women who have achieved extraordinary accomplishments through career success, community service, leadership, mentoring, and dedication to YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. Boasting over 200 honorees, the Women of Achievement Academy is comprised of the most accomplished and esteemed leaders in Northeast Ohio.

This year we celebrated the 45th Women of Achievement Awards ceremony. Eight women received the award at the live televised event, broadcasted by WKYC on May 27, 2021. Click here to read more about the class of 2021 honorees. 


The wait is almost over! We are excited to share with you the Women of Achievement class of 2022. Join us Friday, October 29th at 12:30 PM when our President & CEO Margaret Mitchell introduces these Powerhouses of Progress during WKYC Channel 3’s We The People segment.
