YWCA Hosts The Final Diversity Dialogue of 2015!
(October 26, 2015) – The public is invited to join YWCA Northeast Indiana on Wednesday, October 28th from 12 – 1:30pm for the final Diversity Dialogue of the year. This event will be held at YWCA Northeast Indiana’s administrative offices, located at 1610 Spy Run Avenue.
This month, the Diversity Dialogue topic will be “Can we have a day without Violence?” We will explore the continuum of violence and how we can work together to create a world with peace, dignity, and respect. We will dialogue about different forms of violence and how it is being perpetuated through different systems in society. Through this dialogue we will consider the way different genders, races, cultures and religious groups can be impacted by violence; all with the goal of reducing violence. Participants will walk away with knowledge of the role each of us can play in ending violence and what one person can do to spread peace to all.
To RSVP for October’s Diversity Dialogue contact Sue Hiatt at YWCA@ywcaerew.org, or 260-424-4908 EXT. 254.
YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Diversity Council hosts monthly Diversity Dialogues, where we bring in panelists and guest speakers to help lead the community in compelling conversation on interesting topics important to our community. We do our best to always ensure a variety of perspectives, and Diversity Dialogues are sure to provoke deep thought.
