Women of Distinction

Since 1973 YWCA Mankato has honored more than 150 women and 8 organizations for their leadership, significant impact on the community and their dedication to YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Please join us for a virtual evening to celebrate the accomplishments and character of our 2020 Women of Distinction. 

Each of the women nominated this year have made a large impact on the community. Their efforts have helped women to live independently, combat ignorance, actively try to end gender violence and provide community assistance. Our objective is to honor and recognize women and girls of all ages from the greater Mankato area whose achievements have made a significant contribution to community life and embody the mission of YWCA Mankato.
