Resilient YMCAs: Leaders Talks – Session Three

As part of our response to the CoVid-19 crisis, World YMCA has launched a new initiative,  Resilient YMCAs: Leaders Talks. World YMCA invites YMCA CEOs, board members, youth leaders and senior staff to hear from experts in crisis management, overcoming adversity, mental health, planning for recovery, governance and more. Speakers will share practical tools and concrete action steps to help YMCA lead through change and into the emerging future. Participants will be invited to join a Q&A session.

The third session of the series will feature experts in global health and the China context, mental health and how to identify the change makers that will help accelerate recovery. Our speakers will share a framework of how YMCA leaders can emerge from CoVid with more resiliency and resources to face the emerging future together.
