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, we are thrilled to be back for our annual in-person event on May 25, 2023, to celebrate extraordinary women in Saskatoon!

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

Tickets are coming soon! Please check our social media accounts and website for ticket release date.
