47th Annual Leader Luncheon: Social Impact Reimagined

In an effort to advance our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago has reimagined the business of human services. We leverage the passion and expertise of a community of CHANGEMAKERS who share our desire to address gender and racial inequalities. Recognizing that the needs of women and families are significant and complex, we cultivate INNOVATION and attract new sources of CAPITAL to strengthen our business and diverse set of services. And we believe mutually-beneficial, value-driven, cross-sector COLLABORATION is the key to creating an inclusive marketplace where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Our 21st century, comprehensive SOLUTIONS are delivered across a 1,000 square mile footprint of metro Chicago and are helping women and families achieve transformational personal and financial empowerment. It’s SOCIAL IMPACT, REIMAGINED!
