Racial Justice


YWCA Elgin Racial Justice Commitment Statement

The YWCA Elgin is committed to eliminating racism and seeks to operate as an inclusive and multi-cultural organization. We constantly strive to reflect this commitment in our programs, policies, and practices; as well as in the conduct of our staff, board members and volunteers.

We actively work to create and maintain an organizational culture that values inclusion. Our commitment is reflected in our policies and procedure; including the areas of recruitment, retention, succession planning, professional development, program development, and vendor relations.

We welcome suggestions that will assist us in our work toward creating racial justice, equity, and harmony in our community.
