YWCA Moxie Conference

Carola Gaines (red hat) celebrates her YWCA Women of Distinction Award with her Delta Sigma Theta sorority sisters at a previous YWCA Women of Distinction Awards ceremony.

YWCA Madison will present the 43rd annual Women of Distinction Leadership Awards to women who represent outstanding achievement in their field of endeavor during their upcoming Moxie Conference. Women of Distinction award recipients lead by example and embody the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women.

Women of Distinction’s achievements support YWCA’s work to close the gender leadership gap and support equity for all. Since the awards began in 1974, YWCA Madison has honored over 200 role models in our community. The community is encouraged to celebrate with these award recipients during the Moxie Conference on May 26. The awards will be presented during a lunchtime event, beginning at 11:30 a.m.
