On what would have been her 107th birthday, YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region honors the life and legacy of Dr. Dorothy Irene Height. As a former YWCA leader, Dr. Height played an instrumental role in our organizational structure. During her time at YWCA, she created diverse programs and oversaw the integration of all YWCAs nationwide, and she established YWCA’s Center for Racial Justice. She was integral to YWCA adopting our One Imperative, “to eliminate racism wherever it exists and by any means necessary.” #OnAMission #WomensHistoryMonth #ywca #womensempowerment #eliminatingracism ...
