The YWCA is joining in the International Women's Day celebration by inducting 11 career leaders into its Women of Excellence academy.

The organization's entire mission revolves stopping racism, empowering women and promoting social justice.

"I think we can all agree this is the year of the woman," Mitzi Ziegner said. "We are here to honor excellence and accomplishments that women achieve, and I think now more than ever the sky is the limit."

The YWCA has honored 253 Women of Excellence since 1989.
