Women of the Year

17:30:00

Since 1973, we have been shining a spotlight on exceptional women. They are leaders, mentors, visionaries, angels and heroes. Help us highlight women who shape the Fargo-Moorhead community through their passion, service and significant achievements at this widely-celebrated event attended by 700+ people.

YWCA Cass Clay is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. We strive to break the cycles of poverty and violence for women and their families.

For questions regarding Women of the Year, Sponsorships, or Tickets please contact Morgan Svingen at msvingen@ywcacassclay.org or 701-232-2547.
