YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley’s Tribute to Women Awards is an annual YWCA fundraising event that attracts hundreds of corporate and community leaders and Bay Area professionals. YWCA honors women executive and emerging leaders that represent local technology, healthcare, education, non-profit, and business sectors. These women have excelled in their fields and have made significant contributions to the community in executive and professional roles. Tribute to Women salutes corporations whose policies and practices encourage women’s leadership and promote equal advancement opportunities for women of diverse backgrounds. When the Awards began 40 years ago, Your YWCA recognized the achievements of 25 executive women and their companies for their commitment to expanding professional opportunities for women. This event was one of the many ways your YWCA was breaking ground in Silicon Valley. To date, over 1,500 women have been recognized for their outstanding achievements in the workplace and beyond.
