30th Anniversary Academy for Women of Achievement

Presented by YWCA Nashville and Middle Tennessee at Renaissance Nashville Hotel, Nashville TN

Feb 22 2022
30th Anniversary Academy for Women of Achievement

Join YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee as they induct five inspiring women and one organization into the Academy for Women of Achievement.

Each year, YWCA pays tribute to women who are making significant contributions to the community. Academy for Women of Achievement (AWA) honorees are passionate about empowering women and they make Nashville a more inclusive, informed, just, healthy, and thriving place to live. The AWA was launched locally in 1992 by YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee. The AWA honors women who, through excellence and leadership in their chosen fields, serve as role models for other women. This year’s recipients will join 179 other women who were honored previously with this distinction. The Academy’s independent judging committee, composed of community and business leaders, select honorees from an exceptional list of nominees.

This year’s honorees are: Dr. Glenda Glover, Diane Lance, Wanda Lyle, DarKenya Waller, Councilwoman Zulfat Suara, and MP&F Strategic Communications.

All proceeds of the 30th Anniversary AWA benefit YWCA’s programs and services, including the Weaver Domestic Violence Center.
