Women of Distinction honors and celebrates women leaders in South Florida chosen by the community and selected by an esteemed committee of past recipients and distinguished women leaders with a complement of events that culminate with a grand luncheon.  This legacy event has honored over 220 women innovators, influencers, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs that have effected change in the community and beyond.  Women of Distinction is a platform to honor women leaders and a networking opportunity to connect with leaders throughout South Florida.


Join us at the 23rd Annual Event on Friday, December 7, 2018 as we celebrate accomplished women leaders and rising stars in South Florida.


Thanks to the leadership of our Chair and Selection Committee Members, we are honored to present this year's event. After months of hard work, these volunteers have taken the event to new heights. The March of Dimes and the families we support are grateful for the generosity and effort of the team that made this day possible.
