Who are Women of Distinction?

Women of Distinction are women from all walks of life in our community whose professional accomplishments and/or philanthropic efforts truly epitomize the potential of every woman. Each year, the YWCA South Hampton Roads recognizes and celebrates the achievements of 12 outstanding women during the annual Women of Distinction Awards Luncheon. In choosing the recipients for this prestigious award, the selection committee takes into consideration the nominees’ professional/civic achievements and how the nominees exemplify the values and mission of the YWCA. The honorees must exhibit a dedication to our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women promoting peace, justice, dignity, and freedom for all.

Nominate a Woman of Distinction in your life for a special recognition that she will never forget.
