YWCA Greenwich held its 3rd Annual Women Who Inspire Awards to recognize exceptional women in our community. YWCA Greenwich’s Women Who Inspire Awards was established to recognize and celebrate outstanding women who have excelled in philanthropic, professional and volunteer pursuits. Importantly, these honorees have enriched the lives of many in our community. This event combines the best of the YWCA Greenwich BRAVA and Spirit of Greenwich Awards and acknowledges the changes in society that have led to the fluidity of work/life pursuits for women of today. This year’s honorees were Marianne Ho Barnum, Donna de Varona , Pam Ehrenkranz, Sachiko Goodman, Liz Longmore, and Jane L. Snowdon, Ph.D. Our next generation honorees were Fiona and Isabelle Busch. The 2020 Women Who Inspire Awards co-chairs are Deborah Hodys, Karen Keegan, Dr. Romelle Jones Maloney, Dr. Bis Misra and Kate Fields Osman.
The Women Who Inspire Corporate Award is provided to a corporation for leadership in developing a strong culture and practices that support gender equality and women’s empowerment. Greenwich Hospital emulates those values and received the Women Who Inspire Corporate Award for creating an organization where women are represented at all levels of management, leadership, and board participation.
