This Fall Spokane’s YWCA will hold its annual Women of Achievement Impact Luncheon to honor a woman from the Spokane area for their work at making an important impact in society.

This year’s Woman of Achievement has not yet been selected and is open for nominations. Nomination submissions are due by July 11 and can be made online. The Impact Luncheon will be held on Oct. 7.

Nominees for the Woman of Achievement Award are expected to have demonstrated leadership in arts, culture, business, industry, racial and social justice, community enhancement, education, science, technology and environment.
