All women cannot be empowered if we do not address the issues of race and racism.
YWCA of Greater Atlanta hosted its first citywide forum on race and gender in 2014. Now an annual event, this forum creates a safe space for Atlanta residents from all sectors of society to have an honest dialogue about the interconnectedness of race and gender and to discuss how inclusivity improves our society.
The 2017 forum Conversations: Building Allies aims to continue thought-provoking dialogues and to teach attendees skills that will enable them to promote change in their communities even after the event has ended. Attendees will be provided with the opportunity to connect with other community members to discuss strategies to help strengthen bonds and build allies together.
Corporations, nonprofit organizations, community groups, and schools have found participating in this citywide forum to be thought-provoking and encouraging. Attendees will leave Conversations: Building Allies inspired to personally take action to improve race and gender equity at work, in the community, and with family and friends.
