ABOUT THE YOUNG WOMEN’S INITIATIVE:
Now in its 19th year, the WOMEN’S WAY Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) is a dynamic group of women under the age of 40 who are on their way to becoming the next generation of community and business leaders, advocates for social change and civically-engaged philanthropists.
YWI works to increase public understanding of issues impacting women and girls, while creating opportunities for civic engagement and raising critical funds for WOMEN’S WAY’s education, advocacy and grantmaking programs. YWI serves a central resource for women looking to connect with progressive peers and make a meaningful difference in the community.
We ask that YWI members pay an annual dues fee of $50. The membership year runs from September to August. Individuals who join today will receive benefits through August 31, 2017. Discounted dues for students are available for $25. The benefits you receive with your annual membership dues are endless. Below are a few:
- Discounts to YWI events
- Extensive networking opportunities
- Leadership experience
