The YWCA of Asheville Tribute to Women of Influence (TWIN) recognizes women who are role models in their professions and the community. The event also raises vital support for YWCA programs that bridge gaps in education, earning power, health and wellness, and child care.
Through June 1, 2012, the YWCA is accepting nominations in these three categories:
Equality – Any woman or group of women who has made significant strides toward creating equality (race, diversity, class or economic status, gender, peace, or justice).
Empowerment – Any woman or group of women who has played a significant role in empowering others.
Transformation – Any woman or group of women who has overcome barriers and transformed her life or the lives of others.
The YW will also accept group nominations, provided the entire group is composed of women.
Honorees will be recognized at the 21st Annual TWIN Awards Event Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 7:00 pm at Pack Place and Diana Wortham Theatre.
The YWCA TWIN nomination form is available on the YWCA website, www.ywcaofasheville.org, or can be requested by calling 254-7206 x 206.
