2020 YWCA Women of Distinction

The story of YWCA is one of women intentionally working together across categories of economic, generational, and racial differences to harness their collective power and combat problems impacting women and girls. Each year at our annual spring event, Women of Distinction, we celebrate dynamic women leaders throughout the Hampton Roads who embody our mission to eliminate racism and empower women by honoring them as a YWCA Women of Distinction.
