YWCA Northeast Indiana celebrates a community that embraces the inherent dignity of all people. To encourage awareness and acceptance of diversity, YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Diversity Council hosts monthly Diversity Dialogues, where we bring in panelists and guest speakers to help lead the community in compelling conversation on interesting topics important to our community. We do our best to always ensure a variety of perspectives and topics that provoke deep thought. 


Diversity Dialogues take place monthly, January through October, from 12:00 p.m. -1:30 p.m. at Indiana Institute of Technology (1600 E. Washington Blvd. Fort Wayne, IN 46803).
