The WomanACT Soul of a Warrior Awards was established to honour and celebrate the hard work, compassion and dedication of exceptional front-line workers that play an important role in supporting women and children who have experienced violence. These workers include intake workers, counsellors, children’s advocates, family support workers, legal support workers and beyond.
Join us for an exquisite evening of dancing and dining and help us celebrate International Women's Day, on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 as we honour remarkable women who are transforming lives.
