Every month the YW hosts a Salon Series; a workshop where many gather to hear a panel of experts and professionals discuss their respective topics of expertise. In 2015, the YW hosted the following Salon Series:
February Salon Series:
Black History Month Celebration
The women spoke about the need for social justice transformation in education and the power of community movements to change social conditions for the vulnerable among us.
April Salon Series:
Financial Health: How to Build It – and Keep It!
This amazing workshop gave attendees a deeper understanding of personal finances and touched on key strategies for building personal wealth. Many women sought advice, asked daring questions, and left the workshop with concrete steps on how to improve their financial health. These takeaways included learning about debt repayment plans, the importance of a savings account, home ownership, and more.
