From our mothers to our daughters, our sisters, friends and neighbors, there are thousands of women in our communities who serve as leaders in their families, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods. In this film, we tell the inspiring stories of the three women and one organization who received YWCA Evanston/North Shore's 2012 YWomen Leadership Awards for the work they are doing to promote women's empowerment and social change. This film by Susan Hope Engel chronicles the influences that have shaped the work of our these four award recipients.
Each year the YWCA Evanston/North Shore presents 4 awards to extraordinary leaders from our community whose leadership is specifically aligned with the vision of the YWCA Evanston/North Shore, to empower women and eliminate racism. The 2011 YWomen Leadership Awards were given to Ahlam Ahmed Mahmoud, Ann Feldman, Precious Wright and Project Kesher. This film by Susan Hope Engel chronicles the influences that have shaped the work of our these four award recipients.
