Women’s Leadership Highlighted at Women of Excellence
Women’s leadership, service and volunteerism has allowed for the furthering of knowledge, technological developments and thought progression that provides for a thriving society. Women’s leadership has and is increasingly making a difference in politics, science, the arts, business and volunteerism. As awareness of women’s contributions is spread, the importance of celebrating the accomplishments of women in our community allows an opportunity to look back and clearly see the roles that women have played in a variety of important areas.
The recognition of women’s leadership is not only about looking back in history, because the momentum has continued to increase. Each year, women are recognized for their recent acts of leadership, scholarship and volunteerism that offer society a look at how progress should proceed.
At the local level, communities take time to honor women that are furthering the advancement of society and mobilizing forces of progress in the area. In the St. Joseph area, the annual Women of Excellence event is a valuable opportunity to pay tribute to the contributions from local women.
This much-anticipated event – the annual Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon – is scheduled for Thursday, June 21, 2018, at the Civic Arena in downtown St. Joseph. All nominees are honored at a reception on May 2 at the YWCA at 5 p.m., then all nominees are invited to the awards luncheon on June 21.
Nominees (and attendees!) are recognized for:
- Work or volunteerism in the St. Joseph area, while demonstrating sustained excellence or creativity
- Offering considerable contributions to their field of work or volunteerism
- Promoting positive attitudes and high morale in their work or volunteerism
