Women of Distinction™

A celebration of women who are role models, trailblazers, and outstanding achievers.

Women of Distinction™ celebrates the contribution of women who've worked to improve the quality of life in Guelph, and beyond. It is a nationally-recognized prestigious program, with a long history of shining a light on deserving women. As our journey of justice, access, inclusion, diversity and equity progresses we recognize all femme-identifying individuals through this special event.


The format of Women of Distinction™ is under review and discussion. If you would like to provide feedback for consideration, please contact our Planning Team via email.


What does Women of Distinction™ support?

Women of Distinction™ supports YMCA of Three Rivers programs for femme-identifying people at all stages of life in Guelph and Wellington County. Some of our initiatives include:


Safe Sisters – A weekly program offered to girls in grades 7 and 8 that fosters a sense of belonging, community and grows self-confidence.


Teenage Parents Program (TAPPs) – A program that supports the personal growth and development of pregnant and parenting teens and their families which connects them with valuable resources.
