Thank you to everyone who joined us at YWCA Toronto’s 2019 Women of Distinction Awards!

This year, we celebrated nine women whose passion and unwavering commitment to advancing gender equity is both humbling and inspiring.

We are incredibly proud to have shared the evening with so many other remarkable, diverse women from across our city who came together to cheer, encourage and honour one another.

To our sponsors, corporate donors, long time supporters, the volunteers who generously donated their time, and everyone who helped make this evening an amazing success – we are so grateful.

Without your support our work would simply not be possible. Thank you for helping us transform the lives of women and girls.
