The YWCA Inspire Luncheon has earned its reputation as the most powerful non-profit event in the Silicon Valley. Don't miss our 2022 special guest, Shiza Shahid!

The Inspire Luncheon attracts hundreds of attendees, including corporate and community leaders, elected officials and Bay Area professionals. Funds raised support the organization’s community programs and services that serve nearly 24,000 women and families annually.

Each year, we host an influential speaker who is an advocate and ambassador for change. Past speakers have included Tarana Burke, Susan Rice, Gloria Steinem, Jane Goodall, Helen Hunt, Geena Davis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Billie Jean King, Alfre Woodard, Janet Reno, Benazir Bhutto, Elizabeth Smart and Anita Hill.

The Luncheon also features the presentation of the YWCA Empowerment Award, which celebrates and honors women in our community who are advocates and ambassadors for change. These women are champions – strong, resilient and dedicated to sharing their journey so that other women will become empowered to do the same.

Your generosity and support at this event ensures that YWCA programs and services continue to change the lives of women and families in our community.
