YWCA Princeton is encouraging residents from across Central and Southern New Jersey to nominate local trailblazers and thought leaders for the 2023 Tribute to Women Awards, scheduled for March 16, 2023 at The Boathouse at Mercer Lake in Mercer County Park from 6 pm to 9 pm. The annual event commemorates Women’s History Month by celebrating local change makers who embody the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women through contributions to their professional industries and communities. The Awards will be celebrated in-person for the first time since 2019.
“Representation matters, and we’re never too seasoned or accomplished to be inspired by someone else’s journey,” noted YWCA Princeton CEO Tay Walker. “It’s important to highlight leaders doing the work right here in our community, and to share how they got to where they are in their careers to show everyone and anyone what’s possible.”
Nominations are being accepted now through Friday, October 28. To learn more about the awards and nomination process, visit www.ywcaprinceton.org/tribute.
