It's easy to go with the flow. To not challenge the way things have been done, even when you know there's got to be a better way. Toward that end, Professional Dimensions is proud to take a bold step in supporting the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin (YWCA SEW) as our 2019-21 Charitable Fund Signature Project partner. Over our two-year partnership, we will work together to create The Ripple Effect, a fresh approach to empowering women.
The Ripple Effect focuses on the intersection of racial and gender inequity. Professional Dimensions members will harness their collective power to lift up others in our workplaces and neighborhoods so we can all rise together. We will support YWCA SEW's economic empowerment programs and social justice advocacy work by:
However, direct services alone will never be enough to address the underlying causes of inequity. The Ripple Effect will further engage Professional Dimensions members in exploring new paths that lead to systemic change. Our project offers members the opportunity to immerse themselves in deep learning, equipping themselves with insights and tools to act as change agents and allies within their spheres of influence.
We have the collective power to influence equity and inclusion outcomes in the Milwaukee community. The Ripple Effect signifies a single action we can each take, resulting in a wave of lasting, impactful change.
VISION: Equitable economic opportunity for low-income women in metro Milwaukee.
GOAL: Create and pilot a framework to create sustained and systemic change to address root causes of inequity for women.
