Women of Distinction

We are so grateful to everyone who attended and supported YWCA Toronto’s 2018 Women of Distinction Awards.

On a truly inspiring evening, guests came together to honour eight women who have made a real difference to the lives of women and girls in Toronto. It was a privilege to celebrate these women, and so many other strong and remarkable women from across our city.

On behalf of all the women and girls we support, thank you.
