Women of Distinction


YWCA Toronto’s Women of Distinction Awards, now in its 39th year, is an inspiring event that recognizes the outstanding contributions of women, and celebrates the advancement of women and girls in our communities.

Women of Distinction exemplify the resolve, passion and intelligence it takes to advance our YWCA Toronto movement and transform the lives of women and girls. Each of 2019’s Women of Distinction has an unwavering commitment to helping other women and girls in our city and is implementing real, positive change in our community. Stay tuned to find out who they are.
