The Career Women of Achievement Luncheon recognizes the success women are achieving throughout the Greater Cincinnati business community and beyond. This event, attended by over 2,100 individuals and sponsored by upwards of 150 local organizations, is held at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The Career Women of Achievement is the YWCA’s major annual fundraiser, supporting critical programs that protect survivors of domestic violence, teach adults to read, provide STEM career exploration to young girls, provide childcare for program participants and so much more.
The activities conducted were as varied and diverse as the program sponsors but had common themes: mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived, and connecting those who work to end violence.
The Annual Racial Justice Breakfast was established in 2001 to promote the YWCA’s mission to “eliminate racism” and create a safe space where participants can confront racism. Attendees experience a meaningful dialogue about racism’s personal and community-wide impact with keynote speakers who have had a national impact on landmark civil rights cases.
