Wednesday, September 13, 2017
6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Bianco Room, NYC Campus
The event will showcase the result of a cross-sector partnership between young women of color, local government, community organizations, and philanthropy—the Young Women's Initiative. The nation’s first-ever initiative dedicated to young women of color, the Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) supports young women in overcoming systemic racial and gender inequality and to improving life outcomes in economic security and justice, education, health, and safety.
Through this collaboration, the YWI has secured new philanthropic funding for programs targeting girls, young women, and trans/gender-fluid youth of color in New York City, making for a historic commitment of $20 million for girls and young women of color. Hear first-hand from the change makers involved in this exciting partnership!
Guest speakers include:
- + Melissa Mark-Viverito, NYC Council Speaker
- + Danielle R. Moss, PhD, Co-Chair of the NYC Council’s Young Women’s Initiative and President of Black Agency Executives
- + Ana Oliveira, President and CEO of the New York Women's Foundation
The event is free and open to the Pace Community and public. RSVP now.
