Young Women’s Initiative Alumnae Spotlight
The Young Women’s Initiative will be underway starting on Tuesday, November 17th with 18 Degrees back at the helm. In anticipation of the new program year, we wanted to give an opportunity for young women to use their voices.
Our Community Investments Manager, Nicole M. Young, connected with a couple of Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) alumnae to share how YWI has impacted their lives and share what they are doing now.
What have you been up to since graduating from the YWI program?
How has YWI influenced and informed your personal growth? What do you think about your leadership capabilities now?
How are you involved in your community? How have you become more engaged at school or work since graduating from the program?
When involved with YWAC, which task force were you involved with? Have you done any work related to these issues since finishing the program?
A Special Note from Ebony Steed, YWI ’20
