2019 Women of Achievement Honorees

Each year the YWCA Women 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.

The YWCA Women of Achievement Luncheon will be held on Monday, May 6, 2019, at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown. KeyBank and University Hospitals are longtime presenting sponsors of the event.

Our class of 2019 is a group of women who have thrived when faced with adversity and chose to create their own paths. As diverse as these women are, they collectively share the passion to better the community through their work and a dedication to share their knowledge with the next generation of women.
