About this event

on Sat, 03/01/2014 - 15:02

A woman's biggest inspiration often comes from another woman in her life -- her mother, sister, friend or peer. In its ongoing efforts to empower women and eliminate racism, the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester will host its sixth annual “In the Company of Women” luncheon. For five years, this event has attracted over 550 women and men from across the greater Westchester community. Attendees have the opportunity to meet other important women who make a difference in Westchester County, gain insight and inspiration from the keynote speaker, and most importantly, to help to fulfill the YWCA’s mission of empowering women and eliminating racism through their involvement and personal generosity.
