YWCA METROPOLITAN CHICAGO CELEBRATES WOMEN'S EQUALITY DAY
Friday, August 26, 2016 commemorated Women's Equality Day, the 96th anniversary of women in the United States being granted the right to vote. To celebrate the progress made towards women's equality, but to also spark conversation around what needs to be done, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago ( Dorri McWhorter) planned a number of Women's Equality Day activities throughout the week including media appearances on WGN TV and Windy City Live, a CTA takeover promoting the YWCA's "Without the W" marketing campaign developed by VSA Partners, and an Uber driver recruitment effort where Dorri took the wheel, literally, for the YWCA.

The YWCA also convened professional women and men from many of Chicago's north suburban companies for a Women's Leadership Forum at Baxter ( Jeanne Mason and  Jill Schaaf), where featured speakers included business leaders Cheryl Francis and Renetta McCann.

Dorri also delivered the keynote address as part of the Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls Symposium, hosted by congresswoman Robin Kelly. For more information on how to take action on Women's Equality visit www.notthatcomplicated.org.
