About the Event

On Monday, August 19, spend the day at Chautauqua Institution with your YWCA Community. Attend inspiring lectures throughout the day, come together for lunch and late afternoon tapas with opportunity to connect with women from across the Western NY and surrounding areas. The week’s theme Exploring Race and Culture in America brings outstanding speakers and important conversation. Please join us!
