YWCA looking for nominations for 39th annual Career Women of Achievement awards, deadline Dec. 1

The YWCA Greater Cincinnati is seeking nominations for its 39th annual Career Women of Achievement Luncheon next May 9 at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

The YWCA is seeking nominations for the award, which 306 women have won over the last 38 years.

Former Career Women of Achievement Honorees Christi Cornette, Chief Culture Officer, Cincinnati Bell and Susan B. Zaunbrecher, Partner, Corporate Department Chair, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, are the distinguished event co-chairs for 2018.

The Career Women of Achievement Awards recognize outstanding women at the pinnacle of their careers. 
For more information and nomination forms, please visit www.ywcacincinnati.org/careerwomen or contact the YWCA at 513-241-7090.

The deadline for receipt of nominations is Friday, December 1.
Eight finalists are recognized at the Career Women of Achievement Luncheon.

The YWCA established the Career Women of Achievement Awards in 1980 to increase awareness and appreciation for the diverse contributions of women in the work force and in the community. An independent panel of community leaders will judge the nominees based on their outstanding career achievements, strong leadership qualities, and ability to serve as role models.

“It is an honor to co-chair this program with Christi Cornette and to contribute in some small way to YWCA’s mission of supporting women and eliminating racism. Cincinnati is such a caring and altruistic city, and I look forward to celebrating the special women who are an important part of it,” stated Susan Zaunbrecher.
The YWCA Career Women of Achievement is the largest luncheon in the Midwest region and is traditionally a sell-out with crowds surpassing 2,100. Nationally recognized keynote speakers have included Viola Davis, Anna Quindlen and Dr. Maya Angelou. Individual tickets and corporate tables are available at multiple sponsorship levels.

Christi Cornette said, “The YWCA’s commitment to eliminate racism, empower women, and stand up for social justice is needed today more than ever. I am honored to join Susan as Co-Chair of this important event, and I am proud of the YWCA and its tireless efforts to improve the lives of women and their families across our region.”
