This Wednesday night the winners of the 5th annual YWomen Leadership Awards will be honored in Evanston, Illinois. Each year the YWCA Evanston/North Shore Leadership Awards program honors three women and a local organization. The program was created to “recognize, support and promote women’s leadership and the impact women have in our community.”
I am excited to be one of the three women who will be receiving an award. As the Lorraine H. Morton Young Woman of Promise nominee, I will be honored alongside civil rights activist Alice Tregay and Kaethe Morris Hoffer, an outspoken advocate for victims of sexual abuse and exploitation.
Last month I had the pleasure of meeting these inspiring women and many members of the YWomen Board. Over the past few months, I have also had the wonderful experience of meeting and working with Susan Hope Engel who creates a film about the winners each year.
