Whether it is the Equity Leadership Institute, Transformational Workplace Culture series, custom training, free online classes or more, the YMCA Equity Innovation Center is here for you to intentionally engage in thought-provoking experiences and resources that will expand your knowledge and skills. We hope you will join us as you continue your equity journey.

We invite you to explore podcasts and blogs on A Conversation on Race where you will hear from national and local leaders as they share their valuable perspective on systemic racism through their lived experiences. Nate Burleson, CBS Mornings co-host and studio analyst for NFL Today, recently visited with Glen Gunderson, YMCA of the North president, and you can listen to their visit at this link: www.ymcanorth.org/conversations.
