Nominations are now open for the 2012 YWCA Women of Distinction Awards. I am pleased to return, for the third year, as exclusive Social Media Sponsor of this event that honors amazing local women who excel and inspire in various fields.
This year YWCA Metro Vancouver has added a new category: “Environmental Sustainability, which highlights women who are dedicated to promoting the factors and
creating the practices that contribute to a sustainable community while generating opportunities that minimize the physical, ecological, human and economic impact on our planet.”
Visit the YWCA Metro Vancouver website to submit your nomination in the following categories: Arts, Culture & Design, Business & the Professions, Community Building, Education, Training & Development, Entrepreneurship, Environmental Sustainability, Health, Wellness & Active Living, Non-Profit & Public Service, Science, Research & Innovation, and Young Woman of Distinction.
Nominees must live and work (individuals) or operate (businesses or organizations) within the Metro Vancouver region bounded by and including Hope, Pemberton, Sunshine Coast and the United States border. Deadline for submissions is Monday, March 5, 2012 at 5:00pm.
The YWCA Women of Distinction Awards ceremony will take place May 24, 2012 and I will once again be providing a live blog with photos by John Bollwitt. Follow YWCA Metro Vancouver on Facebook and Twitter for news and information. Follow the awards @YWVanWODA.
