Women from the WWOCN

The Wisconsin Women of Color Network, Inc., (WWOCN) is looking for outstanding women of color to receive the 2020 Woman of Achievement Awards.

Established in 1980, WWOCN brings together women of color through a variety of regular and special programs held around the state. Each year, the WWOCN gives recognition to women of color from Wisconsin who made significant contributions to their respective communities and demonstrated outstanding leadership as individuals or in their professions. 

This award will be presented to four honorees, one from each racial-ethnic group: African American, American Indian, Asian American, and Latina. The deadline to nominate a woman is Friday, Feb. 21. For more information on that, click here.

The honorees will be honored at the Annual Awards Luncheon on Saturday, April 4, to celebrate the WWOCN Women’s History Month at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in downtown Madison.

WWOCN, through statewide collaboration, assists women of color in accessing educational resources, health care, social services, and political participation; promotes leadership, cross-cultural awareness, and spiritual and economic well-being in an effort to enrich the lives of women of color, their families and their communities.
