ANNAPOLIS, MD, MAY 19 – The YWCA of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County is proud to announce M&T Bank as the lead sponsor of this year’s Tribute to Women and Industry (TWIN) Awards. The YWCA has an excellent history of partnership with M&T Bank, who have sponsored the TWIN event every year since its inception thirty-one years ago. M&T Bank recognizes the unique opportunity they have to strengthen their community and affect positive change and the YWCA is profoundly grateful to be the recipient of their generosity and good will. The YWCA looks forward to many more years of collaboration in the important work that these organizations do to protect, inspire, and empower women.

TWIN is the premier awards ceremony in Anne Arundel County honoring professional women who have made exceptional contributions to their fields and to our community. It is also a time to acknowledge and thank the organizations that have supported the advancement of women in the workplace and played a role in helping women achieve their goals.

This year marks the 31st Annual TWIN Awards and will be held on June 2nd at the Westin Hotel. Proceeds from the event provide direct support and critical resources to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault through the programs of the YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County.
