Highlights for the Day:

• Keynote Speaker – Loretta Ross

• Panel Discussions

Hear from our keynote speaker, Loretta Ross, an award-winning, nationally recognized expert on racism and racial justice, women's rights, and human rights. Her work emphasizes the intersectionality of social justice issues and how intersectionality can fuel transformation. Ross is a 2022 MacArthur Fellow and associate professor at Smith College (Northampton, MA) in the Program for the Study of Women and Gender, teaching courses on white supremacy, race and culture in America, human rights, and calling in the calling out culture. Ross appears regularly in major media outlets about the issues of our day. She was recently featured in a New York Times piece, "What if Instead of Calling People Out, We Called Them In?"

The panel discussion will recap the YWCA 2023 Challenge topics: disability, housing, music, and mental health. The panel will feature Dawn Bentley, Michael Hart, Albert Earl, and Andrea Hill.
