2019 date and event details coming soon!

In partnership with the City of Cambridge, YWCA Cambridge is proud to be hosting our third Equal Are We Conference. Stay tuned for a new conference date soon. 

YWCA EqualAreWe Logo 2018 ForWeb 01What is it?

Equal Are We is a full-day, dynamic conference with workshops, speakers, and some fun and engaging surprises aimed at making you question: what can I do to make the spaces where I live, work, home, school, and beyond, more inclusive? How can we move from a place of divided views to a place of more tolerance and understanding?

Step up. Stand together.

Who is it for?

This conference is for high school youth age 14 - 18 and adults who share our vision for a community where everyone’s voice is equal.

Warning: This isn't one of those conferences where we talk at you. This is one of those conferences where we talk TO you. We believe every member of the community is an expert in their own space and we want to learn about your vision and ideas. We want you to connect with others and to leave feeling empowered to make your voice heard on what matters to you.

The day will be fast-moving, cover a range of topics, and include a ton of great voices. Don't miss the 2019 event details, sign up for our mailing list today!
