We are pleased to announce that Gaye Adams Massey, CEO of YWCA St. Paul, has once again been appointed by Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, to the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota Executive Council for the Young Women’s Initiative (YWI MN) and the Young Women’s Cabinet. Massey has been a part of the Executive Council since its formation in 2016.

YWCA St. Paul is proud to host, as well as provide leadership and advocacy development to the YWI MN Cabinet of remarkable young women.

“It is an incredible honor to work with this powerful group of young women, providing an opportunity to elevate their voices, insights and stories,” said Massey. “The YWI MN Cabinet empowers young leaders from across the state to work for greater equity and opportunity in their communities.”
