Women's History Month

In March, we commemorate Women's History Month and mark International Women's Day on March 8. As of today, 59 percent of our full-time staff and 67 percent of our total workforce (full and part time) identify as women. 

The YMCA of the Triangle's Women's Leadership Resource Network (WLRN) invites all Y staff to learn more about women in the national Y Movement and in our YMCA.

In 2021, Suzanne McCormick became the first woman to serve as President and CEO of YMCA of the USA. A 30-year nonprofit executive, Suzanne is a sought-after speaker and thought leader in the nonprofit and social impact sectors. In her role, she serves as an inspiration and symbol of what’s possible for future women leaders, including the millions of girls and young women who engage with the Y as members, participants, staff and volunteers.
