For 146 years, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago has been a leader in creating positive social change with a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We believe that our communities are made healthier, wealthier, stronger and more resilient through the contributions of women. And, since 1972 we’ve held our annual Leader Luncheon at which we honor Outstanding Leaders who are aligned to the YWCA’s mission. This year’s honorees also contribute to healthier, wealthier, stronger, and more resilient through their approaches to business, journalism, public health and corporate social responsibility. We hope you will join us on November 17, 2022 to learn more about YWCA Metropolitan Chicago’s impact and our 2022 Outstanding Leaders.

Outstanding Leader in Racial Justice: Natalie Moore, Author and Journalist, WBEZ 
Corporate Social Innovation: Discover
Outstanding Leaders in Health Equity: Allison Arwady, Founder, M.D., Commissioner & the Health Equity Index Committee, Chicago Department of Public Health
