Race & Gender Equity

A- A A+

YWCA Madison’s Race & Gender Equity programs create a more inclusive community while addressing and training against interpersonal and structural racism and sexism.

Racism and sexism affect all of us, regardless of what we look like. The elimination of racism is an on-going process that requires persistence, commitment, and continuing dialogue between individuals and groups.

Our gender equity programs aim to help women develop skills to help them advance in their careers while breaking down barriers that prevent women from attaining leadership roles with a specific focus on women of color. 

YWCA is committed to helping individuals, organizations, and companies in the Madison community improve race relations and gender equality and find ways to eliminate racism and sexism through constructive dialogue and meaningful action. YWCA achieves these goals through the programs listed below.
