A woman alone has power, women together have impact. That’s what YWomen is all about.

Each year at our YWomen Leadership Celebration, YWCA Evanston/North Shore recognizes and celebrates women leaders in our community for their commitment to women’s advancement and racial justice. The films about their lives lift us up and inspire us to do just a little bit more in our own lives.

2023 Event Highlights Include:

  • Cocktail Reception
  • Live music by violinist Windy Indie
  • Silent Auction
  • YWCA Program Highlight: YW Tech Lab 
  • YWomen Film by Susan Hope Engel


All YWomen proceeds benefit YWCA Evanston/North Shore programs that empower women, including comprehensive domestic violence services, economic advancement, and racial justice programming.
