Women of Distinction

Each year YWCA McLean County gives special recognition to women who have made their mark on our community. The Women of Distinction award, a YWCA national initiative, is the focus of the event and recognizes the professional and personal achievement of women. Proceeds from the event benefit the diverse programs offered through YWCA McLean County.

Recipients of the YWCA Women of Distinction Award have a shared commitment to give something back to other women in our community, so they created and fund the WINGS Award, which is also presented at the Women of Distinction Award Banquet. The WINGS award is intended to encourage development in women, both professionally and personally, through mentoring and financial support. The award is given annually to a Woman to Improve her skills for a Notable purpose which allows her to Grow professionally and to achieve Success.
