YWI Cabinet Update

YWCA St. Paul Youth Development staff, along with the Governor’s Office and the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, welcomed 10 new members to the Young Women’s Initiative of Minnesota (YWIMN) Young Women’s Cabinet in late 2018. These bright individuals joined 15 continuing members and continue to work with our Youth Development staff on leadership development and to advocate for equity and systems change for young women and girls across Minnesota.

In the Young Women’s Initiative of Minnesota Blueprint for Action, the YWI Cabinet proposes actions to increase equity of opportunity for girls in Minnesota in the areas of financial stability and prosperity, safety and violence prevention, lifelong learning, cultural and self-identity, health and wellness, and family and caregiving.
