On Thursday, April 27th, YWCA of Syracuse and Onondaga County, Inc. will be presenting our 19th Annual Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism and Promote Diversity at Drumlins Country Club in Syracuse. The event is themed "A Real Conversation: Addressing the Barriers to Progress in CNY."
Since its inception, the Day of Commitment has featured the Induction Ceremony of our Academy of Diversity Achievers, which has honored nearly 350 community leaders for spearheading programs that embrace and promote diversity, support opportunities for women's growth and leadership, and advance the elimination of racism. The Day of Commitment has also been a medium for important diversity training, offering dozens of professional development workshops on multicultural and Diversity & Inclusion initiatives that have benefited nearly 1,000 event participants. With the backing of corporate partners that choose to invest in YWCA's community-oriented work, the event has evolved into a signature fundraiser that celebrates notable work to end discrimination while equipping participants to launch similar projects themselves.
