What makes a woman distinct? Recent volatility in the business sector has prompted many to ask what role women’s leadership might play in the recovery.
YWCAs across Canada celebrate the women who lead in their communities through their trademarked Women of Distinction Award. YWCA Hamilton opened nominations in November and closes them mid-February.
“A Woman of Distinction is not cut from a single cloth”, says Cathie Pead, CEO of YWCA Hamilton. “She can be the leader who goes the extra mile, the foremother, who broke through barriers for others, the young woman who shows promise beyond her years, or the hard-working woman behind the scenes. A Woman of Distinction shows vision, creativity and initiative.”
