The YWCA Economic Justice Council is hosting its first virtual panel series.

Tune in as we listen to members of our Economic Justice Council discuss how organizations can commit to creating an inclusive workforce to form a more equitable economy. Learn about what they’ve already done and what they plan to do in the future to ensure that racial and social justice in economics isn’t just a conversation but a series of actions we can all take toward a better future for all, and until justice just is.
