The Emerging Leaders had a great fifth session at the YWCA Women's Residence on Thursday, June 2nd. The group learned about YWCA's mission to empower women and eliminate racism as well as the history of the Women's Residence in White Plains from ELP classmate Isabella Malouf, Director of Residence & Clinical Services.


The group was honored to meet and learn from Alicia Jones-Mcleod, the new Director of the Westchester Center for Racial Equity who led an interactive discussion on authenticity in leadership with a focus on racial equity. Thank you to ELP Advisory Board Chair, Dante Hudson, YWCA Chief Operating Officer, for creating space for this important session. Thanks also to ELP Alumni Co-chair, Dana Hysell, Outreach Services Specialist, Westchester Library System for joining us. 

The conversations continued over into a networking hour with a delicious spread of pizza, salad and dessert. We can't thank Alicia, Dante and everyone at the YWCA and Women's Residence enough for hosting our ELP class of 2023.
