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 invite individuals and groups to embark on a pathway of Leading with Excellence and Equity through learning experiences that can be applied in system change work for greater equity. Join us on the journey through engaging sessions held virtually on Zoom, safe in person or in a mixture of virtual and in-person settings.

Our beautiful diverse community commemorates many cultures and celebrations in October including Global Diversity Awareness Month, National Indigenous Peoples Day, International Pronouns Day and Yom Kippur. Explore the educational and enrichment opportunities in this month’s Connection.

Share Your Valuable Input for Minnesota State Arts Board Survey

In partnership with the UnitedHealth Group Equity Innovation Center, the Minnesota State Arts Board (Arts Board) is seeking to hear from Minnesotans about their experiences with accessing and engaging in the arts. As a state agency, the Arts Board must serve all the residents and communities in our state. Yet, it recognizes that access to the arts and to the benefits of the arts are not equally available to all Minnesotans. To address barriers and/or disparities that may exist based on geography, race, ethnicity, disability, age, income, or other factors, the Arts Board has begun an equity planning process. This planning needs your input!
