YWCA Hosts 21st Annual Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism & Promote Diversity: Keynote Speaker, Dr. Emad Rahim | Press Release: Urban CNY

On Thursday, April 25th, YWCA of Syracuse and Onondaga County, Inc. will be presenting our 21st Annual Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism and Promote Diversity at Marriott Downtown Syracuse. The event is themed “No Hate. No Fear.  Creating an Inclusive Community.” 


Since its inception, the Day of Commitment has featured the Induction Ceremony of our Academy of Diversity Achievers, which has honored nearly 350 community leaders for spearheading programs that embrace and promote diversity, support opportunities for women’s growth and leadership, and advance the elimination of racism. The Day of Commitment has also been a medium for important diversity training, offering dozens of professional development workshops on multicultural and Diversity & Inclusion initiatives that have benefited nearly 1,000 event participants. With the backing of corporate partners that choose to invest in YWCA’s community-oriented work, the event has evolved into a signature fundraiser that celebrates notable work to end discrimination while equipping participants to launch similar projects themselves.
