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 Northeast 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.

Congratulations to our 2017 recipients!
