YWCA Greater Pittsburgh's 150th Anniversary Gala

Leadership Awards

Honoring women's accomplishments since 1983, the YW's Tribute to Women is Pittsburgh's hallmark event for celebrating the achievements of women and honoring those who distinguish themselves in performance and leadership in their fields and in the Greater Pittsburgh community.

Racial Justice Awards

Each year, we pause to honor remarkable women, men, youth, and organizations who have demonstrated a significant commitment to addressing issues of racial justice, equity, and inclusion throughout greater Pittsburgh communities. Their efforts stand as markers of change and examples of leadership for others to follow.


YWCA Greater Pittsburgh staff, board, family, friends, and supporters participate each year in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community - an annual fundraiser benefiting local health and human service agencies. Last year, the YWalk team raised $4,940 to benefit YWCA Greater Pittsburgh programs and services.
