“By nominating inspiring women, you bring forward their stories so we can publicly share their successes and triumphs with the community,” said Melanie Verhaeghe, Women of Distinction steering committee chair.

Categories include arts, culture and heritage; community activism and social enterprise; and volunteerism.
