Women of Achievement

Dear Friends of the Nevada Women’s Fund,

Although this year’s Salute to Women of Achievement was organized differently due to Covid, we remained 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.


 Dr. Jen Welter, Isabelle Wilson,  &  Jamie Gazza
