We are celebrating our 40th Anniversary! For 40 years, the YMCA-YWCA Women of Distinction Awards Gala has celebrated the talent, achievement, imagination and innovation of Manitoban women who have made a unique and exemplary contribution to the development of others and to their community.
Help us recognize the ongoing efforts, dedication and leadership of the strong, talented and selfless women who help shape our society. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the RBC Winnipeg Convention Centre.
Proceeds from the YMCA-YWCA Women of Distinction Awards Gala support a variety of our programs that touch the lives of women, youth and children in our city. These resources bring tremendous societal benefits such as:
- reducing isolation and building connections with the greater community
- creating awareness in regards to violence prevention
- improving self-esteem in young women
- educating female youth on the importance of developing healthy relationships
- providing resources to assist girls in identifying and overcoming negative body-issue stereotypes
