In the first installment of the No Wrong Thing series, YWCA Greater Green Bay CEO, Renita Robinson, spoke with Melissa Borowicz, CEO, and Owner of The Utech Group. They spent the lunch hour in a disarming conversation that many shy away from for fear of saying the wrong thing. They modeled the kind of transparency available in safe spaces, and provided hope for the bridges needing to be built across racial and other demographic differences in women of this region. This candid hour provided a refreshing look at the beauty and strength present when powerful, smart women work together for a common cause. Eliminating racism and empowering women in Brown County starts with conversations like this one.
