Annual awards luncheon

AFW-689.jpg

For the past twenty three years, the annual Awards Luncheon helps support the grant-making for local women-focused nonprofits and general operations for the foundation. Each year the Board of Directors identifies individuals who are leading the way in changing the status of Women in Arizona or around the world. The Sandra Day O’Connor Lifetime Achievement, Voice of Women and Marilyn R. Seymann Awards, are presented independently to three worthy individuals who exemplify that change. 

The event traditionally gathers upwards of 800 attendees from all over the state of Arizona to support our mission of advancing the status of Arizona’s women through research, advocacy and philanthropy.
