Our Associate Director, Jessica Kubel took a trip to San Antonio, Texas for the YWCA's 2015 YWCA USA Leadership & Capacity Building Institute. It is very important for leaders to continue to learn and grow from each other, especially in the non-profit world where our sole mission is to serve our communities and adapt to their needs. Being able to attend a conference like this one allowed Ms. Kubel to speak with other YWs and see what was working at their locations, how they weathered problems, and simply get to know some of our sister Y's better. The conference kicked off with a Keynote speech by Dara Richardson-Heron MD, CEO of YWCA USA. She was also able to attend panels such as Financial Leadership, Mission Impact, and Building Highly-Effective Board CEO Relationships and reflect on what sort of impact their advice could have on the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley community.
