The YWCA Inspire Luncheon has earned its reputation as the most powerful non-profit event in the Silicon Valley.
The Inspire Luncheon attracts over 1,800 attendees, including corporate and community leaders, elected officials and Silicon Valley professionals. Funds raised support the agency’s community programs and services that annually serve more than 18,000 women and families.
Each year, we host an influential keynote speaker whose aim is to inspire the Silicon Valley community. Past speakers have included Gloria Steinem, Jane Goodall, Helen Hunt, Geena Davis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Billie Jean King, Alfre Woodard, Janet Reno, Benazir Bhutto, Elizabeth Smart and Anita Hill.
The Luncheon also features the presentation of the YWCA Empowerment Award, which celebrates and honors women in our community who are advocates and ambassadors for change. These women are champions – strong, resilient and dedicated to sharing their journey so that other women will become empowered to do the same.
Your generosity and support at this event ensures that YWCA programs and services continue to change the lives of women and families in our community. Can’t wait to see you at next year’s luncheon.
