The Women’s Y Foundation announced the Laureates of the 2016 Women of Distinction
Awards on May 18, 2016. Cluster member, Joanna Berzowska has been named laureate in the Science and Technology category.
“The Women of Distinction Award recognizes the role of women in the advancement of society (innovation, discovery, inspiration), by shining a light on women who, through their achievements in their respective fields, have brought positive and lasting changes
on society, and by raising funds for the YWCA Montreal whose mission is to build a better future for women and girls. Each laureate will volunteer her time, talent, and particular expertise by becoming the honorary sponsor of one of the Women’s Y Foundation programs or services. In this way, each woman will symbolize success and perseverance in a particular domain.”
Berzowska will receive her award as a guest of honour at the ceremony in September.
