YWCA Equity Summit (virtual)

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.  

And this year, in light of Covidit 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, June 25 and 26, 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, Assistant Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Evonda Thomas-Smith and Executive Director of the Latino Policy Forum, Sylvia Puente. 

The June 25-26 Summit includes breakout sessions on a number of skill-building topics and is appropriate for ages 17 and older. Not able to make those dates? A recording of the Summit will be available to all registrants for six months. Learn more, including our event schedule, featured speaker bios and workshop presenters
