Women of Achievement

Dear Friends of the Nevada Women’s Fund,

We are pleased to announce that Nevada Women’s Fund will hold the Salute to Women of Achievement event in 2021!

Although this year Salute to Women of Achievement will be organized differently due to Covid, we remain very proud to move forward with recognizing and celebrating the determination, passion and dedication of women in our Northern Nevada community, and the businesses and employers that support them. 


This unique event celebrates the determination, passion and dedication of women in our community and the businesses that support them. Coming from all walks of life, together we celebrate women who meaningfully contribute to their workplace, families and community.

Local corporations and organizations recognize individual women for their community service, career and personal achievements. Considered Reno’s largest business luncheon, nearly 1,400 attended annually to honor the deserving woman in our community while supporting the Nevada Women’s Fund’s mission of inspiring achievement in local women and their families.

The event is an excellent opportunity to honor women inside and outside of your organization. Honor a key employee in your company or maybe consider recognizing a woman in the community. Identify teachers, caregivers, faith workers, non-profit professionals or volunteers.

Like many, we too have retooled our fan-favorite event to ensure that our mission of empowering women in our community thrives. 

In 2020 we virtually hosted Reno’s premier holiday shopping event – including our popular PURSE RAFFLE featuring more than 20 handbags along with some top local vendors for your holiday shopping. The event page is still open for holiday shopping from local vendors and donations.
