Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold last year’s Women of Distinction Award Ceremony to formally honor the six phenomenal women selected.
During the 2021 event, the YWCA will honor those six women, in addition to at least one additional woman and one young woman of distinction. The event will be held in early June and will be an intimate in-person event coupled with a live stream.
The 2020 honorees were, Kim Dickinson, Susie Flaherty, Shieva Ghofrany, Susan Marks and Shelly Skoglund along with Young Women of Distinction Lily Genovese.
