Women of Achievement

Dear Friends of the Nevada Women’s Fund,

It saddens us to not be able to share what is always an inspiring day with you. To serve our community best, and to follow CDC and State of Nevada guidelines for the health, safety and well being of our staff, board of directors and community at large, the May 21st Women of Achievement lunch has been cancelled.

For those who are able, donations to sustain our organization are received with an abundance of gratitude.  For your questions connect at [email protected] or call 775-786-2335.

Be well.

This unique event celebrates the determination, passion and dedication of women in our community and the businesses that support them. Coming from all walks of life, together we celebrate women who meaningfully contribute to their workplace, families and community.

Local corporations and organizations recognize individual women for their community service, career and personal achievements. Considered Reno’s largest business luncheon, nearly 1,400 attended annually to honor the deserving woman in our community while supporting the Nevada Women’s Fund’s mission of inspiring achievement in local women and their families.

The luncheon is an excellent opportunity to honor women inside and outside of your organization. Honor a key employee in your company or maybe consider recognizing a woman in the community. Identify teachers, caregivers, faith workers, non-profit professionals or volunteers.
