New: YWCA Accepting Nominations for Katharine F. Erskine Award

Thursday, January 24, 2013

 

The YWCA Central Massachusetts is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Katharine F. Erskine Award, recognizing women who have demonstrated leadership and reached exemplary levels of achievement in their professions and communities. Erskine Award recipients will be honored at the YWCA’s annual Tribute to Women Luncheon on May 7 at Mechanics Hall.

Each year the award is presented to one woman from each of the following categories: Arts & Culture; Business & Law; Social Service and Government; Education; and Health, Science & Technology. Nominees must show a commitment to the YWCA mission - to empower women and girls and eliminate racism. She must show the following criteria: distinctive achievement and service in her current field; service to community with a demonstrated commitment to social and racial equality; demonstration of commitment to serving as a role model for women and girls; and live and/or work in central Massachusetts.

The Award is named for Katharine Forbes Erskine who twice served the YWCA as president, first in 1930 and again in 1960. Throughout her life she actively championed the rights of women and girls.

The YWCA Central Massachusetts has honored 82 women with the Katharine F. Erskine Award since 1994. They are all pioneers – women who broke through barriers and created new paths for women to follow.

A panel of community leaders, past Erskine Award recipients and YWCA volunteers, will select an award recipient in each of the five categories. Selections will not be based on the number of nominations for an individual, but rather only the merit of the individual. Nominees do not have to be a member of the YWCA.

Nomination materials and more information about the initiative may be found on the agency’s website. Or you may contact the YWCA at (508) 767-2505, ext. 3049 or email [email protected] to request a nomination packet be mailed. Submit nominations to: YWCA Central Massachusetts, The Katharine F. Erskine Award Selection Committee, One Salem Square, Worcester, MA 01608-2090. The dealine for nominations is February 22.
