Gain Perspective from Dr. Hedy Lemar Walls

We are experiencing challenges directly related to equity and inclusion. There is an opportunity for all of us to get more educated and enlightened together through listening and learning on how to create better workplaces where all can thrive.

Organizations across our community are looking at how to improve hiring and training practices, and review policies and processes to ensure racial equity for their teams. Marketing and ad agencies, media outlets, law firms, universities, corporations, government agencies and nonprofits are committed to represent and reflect the communities they serve. We are all doing the work necessary to better create a workplace culture that is welcoming and inclusive for all.

The YMCA Equity Innovation Center is here for you to intentionally engage you in thought-provoking experiences and resources that will expand your knowledge and skills. Together, we can create a future for all to thrive.
