On September 13, Pace University's Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship hosts their fifth annual True Partnerships event featuring the New York Women’s Foundation.
On Wednesday, September 13, join Pace University’s Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship for its fifth annual True Partnerships event, showcasing the result of a cross-sector partnership between young women of color, local government, community organizations and philanthropy, the Young Women's Initiative (YWI). This is the nation’s first-ever initiative dedicated to young women of color. It seeks to support young women in overcoming systemic racial and gender inequality and to improve life outcomes in economic security and justice, education, health, and safety.
Through this cross-sector 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. Join us to hear first-hand from the change makers involved in this exciting partnership.
We are pleased to welcome the following guest speakers for our discussion:
- >> Melissa Mark-Viverito, New York City Council Speaker
- >> Danielle R. Moss, EdD, Co-Chair of the NY City Council’s Young Women’s Initiative and President of Black Agency Executives
