YWCA Olympia 2019 Business of Achievement Nomination Form
NEW! * Nominations due Friday, August 30 at 5:00pm * NEW!
For the 25th year YWCA Olympia seeks to celebrate inspiring South Sound community members during our annual Womxn* of Achievement Celebration on November 2, 2019. We invite you to join us in honoring the amazing accomplishments of employers/businesses in our community. *YWCA is using the “label” womxn to encompass a broader range of identities than woman and it is self-identifying.
We are seeking businesses and employers who reflect the YWCA Olympia mission to eliminate racism and sexism to advance the political, social and economic status of all womxn and girls.
Nominations could support our strategic platforms of Racial Justice (Promoting equity and justice for People of Color), Health & Safety (Improving the social, emotional and behavioral health and safety of all womxn and girls), and/or Empowerment & Economic Advancement (Improving economic opportunity and security for all womxn and girls). Honored nominees could also be considered based on a number of additional criteria that have been identified by the YWCA Workplace Equity Initiative (left). These criteria have been tested and shown to increase gender equity in the workplace.
