YWCA Princeton will host its 38th Tribute to Women Awards on March 31, 2022 virtually. The annual gala highlights women making a difference in their communities and industries across Central and Southern New Jersey through their work, advocacy, and volunteerism. YWCA Princeton commemorates Women’s History Month by celebrating Honorees who advance and embody the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.
The 2022 Tribute to Women Honorees are:
Ka’Neda N. Bullock, MBA, CFP®, AIF®, APMA® – Master Plan Investment Group
Reina Fleury, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP – Penn Medicine Princeton Health
Leyda M. Flores – Asociacion Calidad de Vida
Tara Lavin – Pink Ribbon Softball
Kendra Lee – Mercer County One-Stop and Workforce Development Board
Cynthia Mendez – Arm In Arm
Michele C. Meyer-Shipp – Dress for Success
Jeanette Timmons – Community Volunteer
Lisa Wolff – Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Space and Outdoor Equity Alliance
Senator Andrew Zwicker, Man of Achievement Award – New Jersey Legislative District #16
The Awards will be hosted on Remo, a virtual event platform with networking opportunities, a live-chat, and a program featuring interviews with each Honoree. YWCA Princeton is working with their longtime partners at Riverview Studios in Bordentown to film and produce the program video.
“No one does this work and expects to be thanked for it,” said YWCA Princeton CEO Tay Walker. “Many of our Honorees do the work that they do or volunteer for the causes they are passionate about simply because they want to make a difference—it’s instinct. But that’s even more reason to celebrate them.”
More information about each Honoree will be posted on YWCA Princeton’s website in the coming weeks, as well as sponsorship opportunities and ticket information. Visit www.ywcaprinceton.org/tribute to learn more about the history of the Awards.
Established in 1984, the Tribute to Women Awards has recognized over 600 local women for their accomplishments. The Awards place emphasis on celebrating women who work in industries that support marginalized communities, are dedicatedto advocacy efforts, or are trailblazers themselves.
