Top Five on Friday: November 15

By Katie Stanton

Our theme for this week’s Top Five on Friday is hard work and recognition. Both of these ideas are important, and they are intrinsically linked: hard work deserves recognition, and recognition requires hard work. Our stories this week highlight audacious women who have overcome triumphs and who inspire others to keep forging ahead. We hope you’ll share these articles with your friends and family who need a boost!

Top Five on Friday – August 16

Earlier this week, one of our local associations in New Hampshire faced a scary and tragic situation during a visitation at their center. We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life that occurred at the YWCA New Hampshire, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of all those involved in this incident. (Read the YWCA USA’s full statement.)

This has been a week of coming together and of healing for the YWCA, so our theme for our Top Five today is inspiration: stories that help us continue serving the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women, and that we hope will inspire you.
