Women of Excellence
Since 2001, the start of summer has brought hundreds of community leaders, volunteers and members of the business community together to celebrate the accomplishments of women in numerous roles.
Throughout the year, the YWCA fulfills its mission with the help of several corporate and community partners. We sincerely appreciate their support, time and resources as we work to empower women and families and eliminate racism.
We are excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Sara Beth Myers. Sara is from St. Joseph and obtained her undergrad at Duke, her Master’s at Yale, and later going to law school at Vanderbilt. She began volunteering in a street law program. During that year, Sara worked with survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence. Sara is currently an Assistant United States Attorney, the founder and Chairman of the Board of AWAKE: Advocates for Women’s and Kids’ Equality. Her passion to help others and her drive is sure to inspire us all!
The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism and empower women. To achieve that, we join with other organizations and activities to support social justice movements.
The YWCA of Greater Saint Joseph is always accepting applications for employment.
