THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED THE 34TH ANNUAL WOMEN OF EXCELLENCE AWARDS! Watch the event by clicking the video below if you weren't able to attend or want to enjoy it for a second time!


For the past 33 years, YWCA Northeast Kansas has been honoring Women of Excellence in our community. This year, we're looking forward to one of our most fabulous events yet. Join us on Saturday, September 10th, for an evening of celebration and inspiration! Our honorees represent the resilience and strength of our Topeka neighbors, showing us how to move forward, create change, and get the work done.

But this isn't just an opportunity to celebrate past accomplishments of the strong women leaders in our community. This is an opportunity to be a part of the change.

As our largest fundraising event of the year, the 34th Annual Women of Excellence Awards and Gala is an opportunity to directly support the needs of our community's most vulnerable women and families. With your help, we serve survivors experiencing violence, provide racial justice programming, affordable childcare, professional development, and so much more.

When you support YWCA Northeast Kansas, you are ensuring women and girls have safe and bright futures, you are dismantling systemic racism, and you are changing the power structures that determine the future. Join us. 


The 34th Annual Women of Excellence Awards and Gala are presented by Go Topeka and KTWU.

Each share, tweet, and email helps us spread the word about YWCA Northeast Kansas.
