The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill is very happy to launch its first annual Women of Inspiration & Leadership Award, or WILA. The award will recognize a woman who has contributed to the greater good of the Richmond Hill Community through her leadership, achievement, and example of distinction.  She may have done so through her contribution to a corporation, government, not-for-profit, start-up, or service to the community. 
In addition to the prestige of receiving an award that recognizes the winner as a woman of inspiration and leadership, the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill will donate $1,000 to a charity of the winner’s choice.
Noeline Paul, President of the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill said, “I am thrilled to have our club launch an award that recognizes women and their many achievements. As a club, we knew it was important to acknowledge that women play a significant role in the betterment of society. We all know women who are leaders in so many different ways, some beyond traditional notions of leadership, and this award gives us the opportunity to showcase and appreciate women who lead and inspire us in our local community.
The WILA will be presented to a woman who has contributed towards improving the well-being of Richmond Hill residents through the creation, development and/or implementation of a specific initiative or program.
In order to nominate a woman for the WILA, the nominator will need to complete the Nomination Form, which is available on the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill’s dedicated WILA website.  More details are available at
