No Wrong Thing: Three Leaders’ Lenses – Diversity, Communication, and Leadership for Empowerment
Aug 17 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Join YWCA Greater Green Bay CEO, Renita Robinson, in a discussion with Melissa Borowicz, CEO and Owner of The Utech Group, and Bridget O’Connor, founder of the  O’Connor Connective, as they merge three perspectives in response to a significant public occurrence that highlights the intersection of racism, empowerment, alignment and connecting as female leaders. They will spend  an hour in a provocative conversation unpacking the opportunity related to the recent incident on the steps of the US Capital between Representative Ted Yoho, and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the selection of a female candidate for Vice President.  This discussion will give permission to many who have been afraid to engage in or say the wrong thing about what happened.  They will model the reality that you can talk about anything when you create a safe space.  This discussion will provide hope for the current challenges facing women leaders attempting to grow together from different backgrounds and frames of reference.  This candid hour is a refreshing look at the capacity that is present when women leaders work together.  Eliminating racism and empowering women in greater Green Bay and the region starts with conversations like this one. You don’t want to miss it.

2020 Implicit Bias Conference
Oct 15 @ 7:30 am – 4:00 pm

YWCA is on a mission

The YWCA Greater Green Bay is partnering with several agency members of the Brown County CCR to bring you its second annual conference addressing implicit bias. Participants at this event will leave having been exposed to a practical definition of implicit bias, eye opening examples of how implicit bias is expressing itself in Northeast Wisconsin, and a robust community conversation about ways we can positively impact the changing demographics of Brown County and beyond. Participants will exit the conference and go back into families, jobs and lives with tools to make a difference.

A variety of regional experts in fields central to diversity, inclusion and anti-oppression work are coming together creating an opportunity related to the YWCA’s dedication to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. They will be on hand facilitating workshops, adding wisdom to panels, and offering practical tools to all those hoping to become a part of the solution to a more inclusive community.

What are people saying about the Implicit Bias Conference?

“I enjoyed meeting so many great people with the chance to have deep conversations with them. I learned lots from their experiences.”

“I loved the hiring panel discussion. I learned so much, and now I have some great stuff that I can bring back to my organization.”

“I received the tools to recognize my bias and make a shift.”
