Last night, friend of Alacra Renee Massoud was named as a 2006 Tribute to Women And INdustry (TWIN) honoree. According to Lisa J. Peterson, this year’s TWIN Chairperson, each of the “49 talented women have distinguished themselve s by their contributions to their organizations. They have made a significant investment in their careers and now serve as a model and inspiration to young leaders who will guide our future. Each of these women has made a lasting contribution, bringing the mission of the YWCA: empowering women and eliminating racism. In the less gentle, post 9/11 world we live in, these women become a light, a vector, a strong compass for all.
