About Salute to Women

Salute to Women is a celebration of remarkable women in the Greater Lafayette Community. The first Salute to Women was held on March 15, 1974. Realizing that the local community lacked an environment of support for women and that many women were not being recognized for their achievements, the Lafayette Women’s Political Caucus conceived the idea of a Salute to Women awards dinner. The Purdue Women’s Caucus joined in as a sponsor.

Salute to Women Organizers

During it’s first two and a half decades, the Salute to Women program was coordinated by several local women’s organizations:

Lafayette Women’s Political Caucus
Purdue Women’s Caucus
American Association of University Women
Lafayette Business and Professional Women
Lafayette Altrusa Club
Association for Women in Communications
American Business Women’s Association
Association of Women Business Owners
YWCA Greater Lafayette

YWCA Greater Lafayette became the sole sponsoring organization in 2000.
