Women of Distinction AWARDS

Tell us about an inspiring woman you want to celebrate! Our community is full of amazing women; trailblazers, role models, women who are opening doors and challenging the status quo.

Do you know a woman who is making a difference to the lives of women and girls? We want to celebrate her.

Every year, YWCA Toronto honours remarkable women who champion gender equity across a range of areas including business, education, social justice, advocacy, arts, health and philanthropy.
