Thank you for visiting Greensboro!

Dara Richardson-Heron, chief executive officer of YWCA USA, the nation’s oldest and largest multicultural organization that promotes solutions to enhance the lives of women, girls and families, was the keynote speaker of Women to Women’s Celebration luncheon on Oct. 24 at the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center.

She informed, motivated and entertained more than 500 women and men at the annual event. Another highlight was the Passion to Purse program, funded by a grant from Women to Women, having an opportunity to showcase its purpose by inviting graduates to sell and promote their products at the luncheon. In addition to Dr. Richardson-Heron praising the program, it was featured in a film shown at the start of the event.

Lindy Garnette, CEO of YWCA Greensboro introduced Dr. Richardson-Heron to an enthusiastic audience. Several YWCA board and staff members attended the event. Overall it was a splendid day to celebrate women in general and the YWCA in particular.


Can We Talk About Real Issues?

We’ll start a conversation on the Housing Needs for the Poor, Expanding Medicaid in North Carolina, and How to Fight Discrimination found in HB2.

The event is free. Doors open at 11:45 a.m. The conversation will start at noon with local experts who, we promise, will get you talking. You bring your lunch and we’ll supply drinks and a delicious cookie. It’s not too late to understand important issues. Even if you have already voted, this is information that matters to you and your community. Join us!

Zachary Gonzalez’ mother calls him an “old soul” and says “he has always been filled with such compassion toward others.
