YWCA's 4th Annual Equity Summit Takes Place April 10, 11. Don't Miss It.

March 17, 2019

Regardless of where you are on your journey to gaining greater understanding of racial equity--and whether or not you've attended before--the YWCA Equity Institute's annual Summit always offers an impressive range of speakers and break-out sessions to help move one's personal and/or organizational needle toward intentionality and commitment to equity and inclusion.

 

 

Particularly if you're a board member or high-level leader in one of Evanston's many non-profit and civic organizations or if you own a small or large business here--this is an important opportunity to look inward so you can move forward to making necessary change from the personal to the institutional at every level in our community.

 

The event is open to the public and it's a great way to meet other Evanstonians who are committed to leveling the racial playing field.

 

This year's keynoter is Dr. Gail C. Christopher, the visionary for and architect of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation-led Truth Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) effort for America.
