Building an Equitable Society from Community to Companies – Action is Key

About this Event

For two decades, YWCA of Syracuse & Onondaga County has expressed its commitment to its mission through its Annual Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism and Promote Diversity. This event brings together local residents, community leaders and business professionals to address the issue of racism in our community, provide training and education on multicultural communication and diversity initiatives, and publicly support programs working to combat discrimination and increase equity, diversity, opportunity, and inclusion. As a component of this expression, YWCA has instituted its annual Stand Against Racism walk in conjunction with Day of Commitment, providing a visual representation of solidarity in our movement.

The Day of Commitment is a half-day seminar held by YWCA that is filled with exceptional speakers on the topics pertaining to the critical issues pertaining to racial equity, diversity, and inclusion in Syracuse & Onondaga County and how we can come together as a community to make real, positive change.

Not only does Day of Commitment provide an invaluable training opportunity for business leaders, companies, organizations, and individuals, it also facilitates necessary conversations for growth and change as we hear educational and riveting presentations throughout our workshops from thought leaders and community leaders that are experts in the field.

Every year we focus on the most relevant and pressing topics in our community. We are pleased to announce our 2020 Day of Commitment theme and our proposed workshop topics. We hope that you will be inspired to participate and even lead these conversations.
