Women of Achievement 

Since the YWCA Kitsap County first created the Women of Achievement Award in 1989, over 350 exceptional women have been honored, each of whom has made tremendous contributions to our community and beyond.

Each year, the awardees are recognized at our annual Women of Achievement Awards event. Last year’s event attracted over 300 of the “Who’s Who” of Kitsap County!
