tribute to women

Tribute to Women was born in 1992 as a way to empower women by recognizing their dedicated work and its positive effect on our community. 

A program like none other in the area, Tribute progresses the YWCA mission by providing community corporations, organizations and businesses a platform to publicly acknowledge the outstanding achievements of women in the East Tennessee-Southwest Virginia region. Additionally, Tribute to Women serves as a significant source of funding for the vital services offered to women and families through the YWCA.

Ways to get involved:   

  • Nominate: Each year, businesses and other community groups are invited to nominate women who have made significant contributions in the areas of art, education, professional achievement or community service.

  • Participate: Share the excitement of this program with others, follow us on Facebook, get involved by volunteering, and attend the event in the spring.

  • Contribute: Give at the corporate level as a Tribute Patron; Sponsor a table as a group or small business; celebrate the success of each year’s recipients by attending as a community member or Tribute Alumni.
