Since 1982, the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards has been nationally recognized as a highly prestigious award for women. Our annual awards ceremony has honoured hundreds of women for their inspirational leadership & extraordinary contributions to our community, celebrating the best achievements and most meaningful initiatives.

This year, at our May ceremony, we are celebrating 40 years of strong female leaders and visionaries who are “Lighting the Way”.

All proceeds from the awards events go towards the YWCA Saskatoon and the important programs & services we deliver.
