Women of Distinction

Women of Distinction


Every year, YWs across Canada recognize outstanding community members through our signature Women of Distinction awards. Award recipients are women whose accomplishments raise up other women and girls and forge a path for gender-based equity through work, volunteerism, and role modeling

YWCA Moncton’s public call for award nominations is issued early in the new year and, after a rigorous selection process, award recipients are named and fêted at a spring evening awards gala featuring live entertainment, delicious food, and passionate speakers. In addition to accolades from the community, Women of Distinction receive honorary lifetime YWCA Moncton memberships.

This year, the YWCA will be holding gala events in both Moncton and Saint John
