Honoring the accomplishments of local, outstanding women

little tribute.jpg

Each year, Waypoint upholds its rich tradition of recognizing women for their personal, professional, and civic contributions to the community through Tribute to Women of Achievement. Reflecting Waypoint’s mission of moving people forward, these women are agents of change in the Corridor through their innovations, organizational enhancements, leadership, and service to others. Their efforts demonstrate the positive influence and impact women have in our community every day. To date, over 1,500 women have been recognized for their achievements and accomplishments. We hope you will join us for this amazing celebration!
