Charitable Fund 2019-21 Signature Project Kickoff

  • Wisconsin Club, 900 West Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53233




Let us introduce you to the NEW 2019-21 Professional Dimensions Charitable Fund Project! Please note this is a Monday evening program.

THE RIPPLE EFFECT is a trailblazing two-year initiative between the Charitable Fund and the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin. The bold goal of the PD Champions Team headed by Angela Adams and Brenda Skelton is to create and pilot a framework for sustained and systematic change to address root causes of inequity for women.

The rationale for the Ripple Effect is that a multiplier is created when racism and sexism intersect. Hear firsthand how this project will tackle economic realities for low-income women in the Milwaukee community, especially women of color. Learn how the fundamental issues around racism and sexism undermine a women's self-sufficiency in a systematic way. This project will raise funds for direct service to women served by the UWCA in its job readiness and workforce development programs. In addition to raising funds, the PD Champions hope to "raise the conscience" of our membership in a way that will support advocacy and system change by educating and equipping our members to be effective change agents within their own spheres of influence. Please join us to learn how you, too, can create "The Ripple Effect."
