We are women who believe that being part of the YWCA community is essential and that by helping, we pave a better path for the future. We are women just like you. We are passionate, determined and focused on making the YWCA the central place that is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees at the YWCA Cambridge is a group of women who come from many backgrounds and bring many strengths. They have careers in healthcare, finance, retail, education, human resources, photography, law, community housing and many other fields. Some have been involved with the YWCA for over 30 years; some, just a few months. Some were born and raised in Massachusetts; others have traveled thousands of miles to become part of our family.
