The Women’s Y Foundation of Montreal is committed to supporting the importance of women’s leadership and ambition in all spheres of the community. Our vision: an inclusive and egalitarian society where women and girls have the power to reach their full potential.
The Women of Distinction Awards thus contribute to the recognition of the role of women in the advancement of society and make it possible to engage and mobilize this fundraiser’s guests to take a more active part in society.
