Our next conversation will feature Anika Ward, Founder of Sankofa Leadership Network, discussing the everyday connections between diversity, equity and inclusion and wellness, and the ways we (as community/family members, colleagues, and leaders) might shift our ways of engaging to ensure that our impact—on ourselves and others—contributes to more equitable and healthy spaces.
The onset of COVID-19 has brought new hardships and barriers for the 1,200+ people served in our programs, as well as significant challenges for our organization. We need your support to help all of those in the community who depend on us.
YWCA St. Paul was recently selected as a recipient of a $3 million gift from Author and Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott. This one-time gift is the largest private gift in YWCA St. Paul’s history. It will allow the organization to strengthen and grow its capacity to deliver programs in supportive housing, youth empowerment and employment and its work to empower and equip community members to work for racial justice and equity in the Twin Cities.
