The nominees for the YWCA’s Women of Distinction Awards have been announced and the winners will be awarded at a banquet ceremony Tuesday, May 31st at the Westin Bayshore.
Inspiring women from around the region have been nominated in for their work in Arts, Culture & Design, Business & the Professions, Community Building, Education, Training & Development, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Health & Active Living, Non-Profit & Public Service, Technology, Science & Industry, and as a Young Woman of Distinction, or for creating an Innovative Workplace. From a playwright, artists, CEOs, nurses, Executive Directors and volunteers, to educators and students. A full list of nominees is available online.
While the award winners are determined by the YWCA’s committee, the Connecting the Community Award relies on a public vote. All nominees are listed in an online poll and they need your help to get votes until the poll closes May 27th.
You can also purchase your tickets for the banquet at an early bird rate of $170 before May 6, 2011. Included with your ticket is a full dinner at the Westin, drinks, and a tax receipt for a portion of your ticket price. This event supports the non-profit programs of the YWCA in Vancouver.
As the exclusive social media partner for the second year, John and I will once again be providing live coverage from the awards on Miss604.com on the night of the banquet.
