YWomen Lead

YWomen Lead is a Community of Practice Promoting Women’s Empowerment.

Do you want to develop relationships with other women and build your collective power in order to lead change in your organization and community?

In this nine-month intensive leadership development series, you will develop skills to support your personal growth and strengthen your organization. Our approach is intersectional, and focuses on leading inclusively. You will also develop connections with a group of peers who are passionate about  leadership in the context of systems of oppression.

Who Should Consider Participating?

The series is designed for people that experience gender oppression that want to expand their leadership skills with an emphasis on leadership as a behavior, rather than a social location or title.

Schedule & Topics

Each of our four-hour sessions are held once each month (from 8:30 am—12:30 pm) at the YWCA Empowerment Center located at 2040 South Park Street.

Session Topics Have Included:
  • Exploring Aspects of our Intersectional Identities
  • Implicit Bias & Internalized Oppression
  • Navigating Triggers
  • Self-Care & Boundary Setting
  • Leading Inclusively for Organizational Change
  • Negotiating for Your Worth
