At YWCA Northeast Kansas, we believe in a world where women rule, and their brilliance knows no bounds. Together, let's honor these extraordinary trailblazers at our 35th Annual Women of Excellence Awards!

Every year, we host an evening of inspirational story-telling to highlight the achievements and contributions of our Women of Excellence Honorees. Join us as we pay tribute to the women leaders who rise above challenges, inspire greatness, and work to build a stronger, brighter future for us all.

Not your average gala.
After an awe-inspiring awards ceremony, we're turning up the volume and bringing you the most fabulous party in town! Get ready for the EmpowerBall - a fun and festive party with fellow movers and shakers. Wondering what to wear? Consider this  a semi-formal event, but feel free to add your own personal flare! More than anything, we want you to feel glamorous, confident, and ready to enjoy the celebration.
But the EmpowerBall is more than just a party-it's a chance to make a difference. By joining us on this unforgettable night, you're directly supporting our mission to empower women and create a future where equality and opportunity thrive. Your presence and support  helps us continue providing life-changing programs, resources, and advocacy for our community.
