Women of Influence Nominations

Nominations for our 2023 Women of Influence Class have closed.

Watch for our honoree class announcement in November 2022!

Since 1998, YWCA Dayton has set aside one special day to recognize and honor women in our community. We celebrate Dayton’s most influential women, all of whom have made a difference in our community through their dedication to the YWCA mission of empowering women, eliminating racism and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Important – Read First!

We highly encourage you to type your responses first in a Microsoft Word document and then copy/paste them into this form. This will ensure that your work will not be lost in the event the nomination form mistakenly closes. The form is not able to save your responses for returning to at a later date.

Nominations are kept on file and will be considered for the year submitted plus two (2) years. After that time period, if you would like a woman who has not previously been chosen to again be considered for a Women of Influence award, please re-submit their nomination with updated and/or additional information. You are also welcome to submit additional information to a previous nomination that is still within the 2-year consideration period.

Nominations for the 2023 honoree class closed on Sept. 7, 2022.
