Women's History Month Events
Celebrate with Us
The theme for this month is Empowering Women as History Makers, brought together by our Y leaders who identify as women and allies of all genders in collaboration with the Equity & Justice Center of Excellence. We have created a month-long series of inspiring and empowering virtual events and activities centered around the pivotal role girls and women have and continue to play on the front lines, in global arenas, at work, in sports and as young changemakers.
