slides: YWCA RI Names 2012 Women of Achievement
Monday, September 17, 2012
The Women of Achievement awards recognize women across industry, culture and public service. “We see the honorees as true role models for girls and young women growing up in Rhode Island,” said Deborah L. Perry, president and chief executive officer of YWCA Rhode Island. The selection criteria call for women that demonstrate exceptional skills, leadership and mentoring. The women break new ground and old barriers. They are agents of positive change and inspiration. The awards are based on achievements promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity–all values embodied by the YWCA.
The public is invited to attend this year's 8th Annual Awards Luncheon on Thursday, September 27 from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Kirkbrae Country Club in Lincoln. Tickets are $50. For more details, visit http://www.womenofachievementRI.org or call Lisa Piscatelli at 401-769-7450.
