Women of Distinction

Each year, we honor exceptional women who are paving the way for future girl leaders. Honorees are women of outstanding success who are making significant contributions in five key areas: emotional and physical health; financial literacy; science, technology, engineering, art, and math; leadership and academic success; and global citizenships. These women give hope and inspiration to girls through their achievements and passion for our community.
