WOMEN OF DISTINCTION GALA
Aug 26 @ 6:00 pm – 6:15 pm

Women of Distinction Logo

The 2021 Women of Distinction honorees, as well as all Women of Distinction Academy members, and the community are invited to our annual Women of Distinction gala.

This event honors those women who have shown true dedication to making a difference in our community. They embody our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. In their work and community service, they fight inequality with grace, unify diverse individuals to work as one for the better good, and encourage the enhancement of everyone’s unique qualities.

We were unable to host our Women of Distinction event in 2020 so we are very excited to recognize honorees this year.  Please join us to honor the 2021 and the 2020 Women of Distinction and celebrate their accomplishments.
