YWCA Equity Summit: Transformation in the New Decade
Our annual Equity Summit gathers our collective resources in one (virtual in 2020) place for a summit designed to move us – as individuals and as systems – to transformation.
This year it is even more important to highlight racial inequities and to understand the tools and models around what people can do to level the playing field.
The Summit will take place over the course of two mornings, and will include featured speakers New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie, WBEZ South Side Reporter Natalie Moore, Professor of African and African American Studies at Harvard University, Dr. Evelynn Hammonds, and Assistant Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Evonda Thomas-Smith, as well as breakout sessions on a number of skill-building topics and opportunities to network.
