A renewed mission for social justice and equity

by The 100 Companies
YWCA Greater Pittsburgh

For over 150 years, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh has worked to improve quality of life for women and strengthen our communities. And in 1970, YWCA USA proclaimed its one imperative: “To thrust our collective power towards the elimination of racism, wherever it exists.”

50 years later, eliminating racism and empowering women is more than a salient and timely mission. It is a revitalized call to collective action for racial justice and equity for women and people of color. Read about how YWCA is deliberately addressing the challenges and celebrating the triumphs of living at the intersection of race and gender here.
