The YWCA’s annual Leader Luncheon honors women and mentors for outstanding achievement in their chosen career fields and one woman for her commitment to racial justice. The YWCA’s Leader Luncheon is one of Chicago’s most prestigious salutes to exceptional leaders. When YWCA Metropolitan Chicago launched Leader Luncheon in 1972, honoring women for their career achievements was a bold, pioneering concept. Today, the life stories of the honorees continue to captivate those who attend the luncheon each year.
