YWCA Cass Clay held its 48th Annual Women of the Year event on Monday, April 26, 2021. YWCA hosted nominees and their guests in person, while welcoming the rest of their incredible supporters virtually. This year’s event honored 40 women and businesses from Cass and Clay counties whose lives, talents, and passions shape our community.
The evening culminated in the announcement of the 2021 YWCA Cass Clay Women of the Year recipients in 12 different categories.
