YWCA Speaks Out Through Events
Upcoming Media Matters Series:
Walk Through Fire by Sheila Johnson
In 2023, Forbes included Sheila Johnson in its list of America’s richest self made women– a celebration of women who have climbed tremendous heights in the business world. Sheila’s journey to become America’s first Black woman billionaire is one filled with extreme highs and reflective lows. Despite it all, Sheila Johnson remains a depiction of what walking through fire looks like. Join YWCA Central Carolinas on Thursday, February 22nd at 6PM for a virtual discussion of the entrepreneur and philanthropist’s autobiography- Walk Through Fire: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Triumph.
This discussion is part of our celebration of Black Girl Magic during the month of February!

YWCA's We Believe Event
YWCA’s annual We Believe event is our single biggest fundraiser each year, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to support all of YWCA’s programs, including transitional housing programs for women and children facing homelessness, out-of-school literacy programs for children in low-income households, and racial justice programs that educate and mobilize our community.
Our We Believe 2024 event will take place in-person on March 5, 2024 from 12pm-1pm.
