The Women of Achievement Awards is the YWCA Lower Cape Fear’s signature event to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women and young leaders. Since 1985, this event has raised key support for the YWCA’s programs and services which promote racial justice and gender equity for thousands of women and their families in southeastern North Carolina.
These awards provide recognition for outstanding contributions and achievements of women active in Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover and Pender counties; reflecting the diversity of women in these areas. Women may be nominated in the following categories: Arts, Business, Communications, Education, Environmental, Health & Wellness, Public Service, Volunteerism and the Rachel Freeman Unsung Hero Award. The Young Leader Awards include three $1,000 scholarships for high school seniors and uses a separate nomination form.
Funds from this event support the YWCA, a social service agency, whose primary goals are to improve the lives of women and their families and to eliminate racism in order to attain a common vision: peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people.
