In partnership with the City of Cambridge and with the support of Male Allies, YWCA Cambridge is holding a half-day conference entitled Equal Are We.

Save The Date Equal Are We

What is it?

In partnership with the City of Cambridge (mainly, the Mayor of Cambridge Doug Craig) and with the support of Male Allies, YWCA Cambridge is holding a half-day conference entitled, Equal Are We. The conference's aim is to involve the whole community in a conversation to create more equal, tolerant and safer spaces from work to home and everywhere in between. The day will be fast-moving: broken up into many segments, cover a range of topics, and include a TON of great voices!

Why do we need it and who is it for?

YWCA Cambridge has a rich history as a trusted leader and partner working for an equal and tolerant community. As such, we are always working to evolve our programs and services to better meet the needs of those we serve, and advocating for these opportunities where they don’t currently exist. We believe that in order to create meaningful and sustainable change, we must involve every member of the community. We need to partner with agencies that are also prioritizing these issues. We need to create spaces where we can ask difficult questions and hold each other accountable for the ways we can personally do more to promote new maps for manhood that prioritize healthy masculinity, and normalize an attitude of intolerance around the objectification of women and gendered violence. In short, this conference is for EVERYONE, especially leaders in our community, who share our vision for a community where everyone’s voice is equal.


This year's conference will take place on February 17, 2016 (8:00 am-3:30 pm) at the Cambridge Centre for the Arts (Toyota Room), 60 Dickson Street. Tickets are $25 for the morning session from 8:00 - 12:30 which includes breakfast. The afternoon session is ideal for those working with youth and includes a workshop  to provide tangible skills for facilitating conversations with youth. The cost for the full day is $40 (includes breakfast and lunch). For conference details, click here. To order your tickets, click here.
