Tribute to Women is EmBe’s premier fundraiser recognizing the incredible contributions women bring to Sioux Falls through leadership in business, philanthropic endeavors or public service. Started as the Leader Luncheon in 1974 by Sylvia Henkin, this evening event brings over 600 people from across the community together to honor and celebrate the achievements of women, men and businesses. All funds raised from this annual event support all programs offered at EmBe.
A sample nomination form, event details and list of past winners is available on our website at www.embe.org/Tribute.

Best practice is to answer the long form questions in a word processor and copy and paste them into the form. If you work on it within your web browser, you may lose your work by accidentally navigating away from the form. You must have a Google Account to save your work and come back to edit it.
