posted in: CASS Event, CASS Updates | 2

On Thursday, February 27th, CASS was honored to attend the Women’s Information Network’s (WIN) Young Women of Achievement Awards (YWA), in which two of its staff members — co-founder and Executive Director Chai Shenoy and Director of Programs and Policy, Julia Strange — were recognized for their achievements in the field of Service/Nonprofit Advocacy. According to WIN, which was founded in 1989 to support and empower women, the Young Women of Achievement Awards honor talented, up-and-coming young women leaders making a difference in their communities. We couldn’t be more proud of Chai and Julia for their nominations!

We send our congratulations to the 2013 YWA winners and the 40-some remarkable women who were also nominated, including CASS board member, Emily Morrison; former board member & Stop Street Harassment founder, Holly Kearl; and CASS colleague, Jess Solomon. Last but not least, we send a huge thanks to WIN for hosting the empowering event! The energy in the room was electrifying, and we’re grateful to be in the company of so many inspiring activists working so passionately to improve our communities.
