Women of the Year 2022

Every year, in conjunction with Bank of America, The Spokesman-Review honors women from across Eastern Washington and North Idaho as the Inland Northwest Women of the Year. In this section, we tell their stories and the achievements they’ve accomplished. We share their commitment to making our hometowns better tomorrow than they are today and how they truly inspire and make a difference.

On Nov. 21, we'll be celebrating this year's honorees with our first live event in three years. Join us for keynote speakers Sen. Maria Cantwell, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and NASA astronaut Anne McClain for a night hosted by Spokane City Council member Betsy Wilkerson. Full details here
