“My confidence as a leader increased exponentially…  The Elizabeth Kearney Women’s Leadership program renewed my energy to make a difference in my workplace, community, and family. 

I use the skills that I learned every day!

“Without the skills that I learned in this program I would not have stepped into a new role at work. 

Thanks to the program, I learned to use my strengths and get promoted (twice!).  I met wonderful women, discovered more about myself, and made positive changes in my work and home life.

I will be forever grateful for YWCA Mankato, the women’s leadership program, and its impact on my life.”
