YWCA's 2015 Woman of Achievement Award Winners Announced

YWCA of Spokane has announced the winners of the 2015 Woman of Achievement Awards. The women will be honored at the 2015 Women of Achievement Impact Luncheon at the Spokane Convention Center on October 1, from 11:30am - 1:30pm.

For 33 years, YWCA of Spokane has celebrated high achieving women in the community at this annual event. Established with the goal of increasing community awareness and appreciation for the diverse contributions of women leaders in Spokane, this luncheon has honored over 200 women in the region who demonstrate leadership through their professional work or service to the community.

Winners of a YWCA Woman of Achievement Award embody the mission of the YWCA of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all by giving generously of themselves to make Spokane a better place for all citizens to live.

This year's Woman of Achievement winners are:

- Louise Kodis, nationally recognized artist - Arts & Culture
- Janet Schmidlkofer, CEO, K&N Electric - Business & Industry
- JoAnn Kauffman, President, Kauffman & Associates - Carl J. Maxey Racial & Social Justice Award
- Marty Dickinson, EVP, Umpqua Bank - Community Enhancement
- Asa Bradley, Physics Professor, Spokane Falls Community College - Education
- Peggy Currie, Chief Nursing Officer, Providence Health Care - Science, Technology & Environment

"The luncheon is not only meant to show our gratitude to these women, but also to inspire our community," says Susan Ashe, YWCA of Spokane Women of Achievement Luncheon Chair and YWCA of Spokane board member. "It sends a strong message to the women in our community that there is a support system for them."

The October 1 event will feature keynote speaker Cheryl Strayed, author of the bestselling memoir Wild, which tells the amateur hiker's tale as she struggles to find inner peace during her 1,000 mile journey. Her story inspired the 2014 release of the movie adaptation of 'Wild.'

Proceeds raised by this event will directly benefit the YWCA's services for domestic violence victims and their children. To find out more, visit ywcaspokane.org.
