Established in 1984, the Tribute to Women Awards has recognized over 600 New Jersey women and allies for their accomplishments. The Awards place emphasis on celebrating professionals, volunteers, and activists who demonstrate commitment to promoting equity, supporting underserved or marginalized communities. Its purpose is to highlight the impact and contributions of those advancing the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women, as well as the various ways the mission can be embodied.
