YWCA Greenwich has a long history of supporting the national initiative to empower women. Since 2003, in support of the YWCA’s mission, we have held Women’s Leadership Workshops to promote leadership opportunities, interactive learning experiences and financial empowerment. Our leadership workshops are free and open to the public, with a few exceptions. Some of our workshops offered are for mothers and daughters, those who are interested in healthy living and those that have reached the age of retirement. Throughout the year there are workshops for everyone that are designed to empower, educate and support women in our community. If you are interested in helping the YWCA Greenwich organize a Women’s Leadership Workshop or are interested in more information regarding our upcoming workshops please contact Danielle LeBrando.
