World YWCA Day 2021: A Celebration of #YWCALeaders

Every year on April 24, YWCAs around the world celebrate World YWCA Day. For 160 years, YWCA leaders and pioneers have taken action in communities to make human rights a reality. In 2020, YWCA has been building strong, powerful and humble advocates and fighters who have supported those around and promoted sisterhood every time, especially during a crisis. 

For World YWCA Day 2021, we will celebrate the individual leaders that make up our powerful and longstanding global movement, the theme for this year is: “A Celebration of YWCA Leaders.”

In 2021, a critical year of women celebration, leadership and action- we ask you to reflect and think about which leaders, pioneers and fighters you want to celebrate for their inspiration, courage, story, passion and sisterhood. These leaders are intergenerational, intercultural, intersectional. They remind us that leaders are beyond power positions, beyond designations and more in making an impact on communities, on lives and on individuals for the better. 

Take this opportunity to celebrate leaders who inspired you, supported and empowered you to be a leader in your community and beyond, to be the change you want to see.

On April 24, let us celebrate the power of YWCA leaders, find more information on the theme, ideas on how to celebrate the day, and how to engage in social media with visuals and social media covers in the tool.

Don’t forget to engage on social media using the hashtag #YWCALeaders #WYD2021.
