YWCA’s Tribute to Women Awards has a legacy of honoring trailblazing women.

When the Awards began 35 years ago, YWCA Silicon Valley recognized the achievements of 25 executive women and their companies for their commitment to expanding professional opportunities for women. This event was one of the many ways the YWCA was breaking ground in Silicon Valley.

This tradition known as the Tribute to Women Awards continues today with over 1,300 women having been recognized for their outstanding achievements in the workplace and beyond.

Emerging Leaders Awards - In addition to the Tribute to Women Awards, YWCA Silicon Valley honors those women early in their careers who demonstrate leadership and innovation within their company. YWCA Silicon Valley honors up to five women a year in the Emerging Leader category.
