Women of Distinction

Join Us Wednesday, June 21, 2023, for the Women of Distinction! 

About Women of Distinction

YWCA Madison is proud to have recognized 251 women since the first Woman of Distinction was bestowed the honor in 1974. Their community service, professional achievement, integrity, leadership, and dedication to the lives of others and to the quality of life for all stand as a reflection of YWCA Madison’s historic mission and values. These awards were established to increase community awareness and appreciation of the diverse contributions of women in the workforce and in the community.
