The YWCA of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County announces this year’s Tribute to Women & Industry (TWIN) Award Honorees. This signature event, being hosted on September 26th is the only awards event of its kind in the county and recognizes the exceptional vision, contributions, and accomplishments of women in both the workplace and community.
Honorees are nominated by members of the community and reviewed by a committee inclusive of YWCA Board members, community partners, and prior TWIN honorees. The YWCA has honored over 900 women since the program’s inception in 1985.

It has assets of $889 million and six branches located in Annapolis, Edgewater, Glen Burnie, Severna Park, and Wayson’s Corner Maryland.
