We’re so excited to announce that Ritu Mukherjee, our Associate Vice President of Product Management, is among a remarkable group of 39 women selected for the esteemed YWCA Silicon Valley Tribute to Women Award. Ritu will be honored at the awards ceremony and dinner in May.
Having nominated Ritu for this award for her passion and strong work ethic, we’re so proud to support her honoree recognition. Ritu’s commitment to making a difference across the organization and in the broader community is truly commendable.
This year marks the 32nd anniversary of YWCA Silicon Valley and local employers coming together to honor outstanding executive women in an event that reflects YWCA’s mission of empowering women and eliminating racism. The YWCA has honored more than 1,200 executive women over the years and has recognized more than 400 organizations in a variety of fields including technology, healthcare, biotechnology, education, law, real estate, human services and financial sectors. The organizations range in size as well as structure and all share the same principle of valuing executive women and the unique perspective they bring to their employers and to their community.
As the first and only multi-service agency for women in Santa Clara County, YWCA Silicon Valley empowers and heals and makes it possible for women, children and families to flourish. These interconnected programs serve over 18,000 people annually at more than twenty community-based locations and include rape crisis, domestic violence, human trafficking, counseling, child care and TechGYRLS ®, a STEM after-school program for girls.
