YWCA Speaks Out through Events
Wellness Seminar - Crocktober: A Healthy Cooking Demo
For all of us that love delicious healthy crock pot meals when the weather starts to get chilly. We’ll be breaking down caloric intake when cooking crock pot meals. Using ways to spice up and make food delicious without all the extra fat.
The demonstration will be led by YWCA’s Director of Fitness, Starr Gargiullo, and Tiffany Chamber from Profile by Sanford. Tiffany has a bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Tech University, is a Certified Learning & Development Trainer from UNCC, and a Certified Health Nutrition Coach from Sanford Healthcare System. Tiffany’s passion in Health & Wellness initiatives comes from her personal story of losing 75lbs.
YWCA’s Wellness Seminars are led by nutrition experts who have certification, training, and experience in helping others plan out what healthy living looks like for them. Will you be joining us for October’s discussion?
On The Table CLT
On October 23 from 9am – 10am YWCA will be hosting an On The Table event. This year’s theme, Finding Home: Where Do I Belong? will focus on the times we’ve each felt connection and and disconnection in Charlotte. Conversation will focus on how we each define home and what a sense of belonging looks like, both in a communal and individual sense. Community members will come together to discuss the pressing issues that Charlotte faces and how we can address them.
Light refreshments will be provided, please register to attend.

Women of Achievement and Donor Recognition
Each year, the YWCA honors women who have enhanced social justice in the Charlotte community. Three inspiring women – each representing her own generation – are nominated by friends, loved ones, colleagues and mentees.
The three categories include: Pioneer, a mature woman who exemplifies a lifetime commitment to promoting social justice; Community Champion, an established woman currently working at the forefront of social change; and Emerging Leader, a woman under the age of 35 who will lead our community forward.
The 2019 Women of Achievement Honorees have been selected. The event is invitation only.
