Unleashing Potential For All Part 2 - Shattering Barriers of Racism

Host Organization: YMCA of Greater Seattle


How do we adapt our environments and cultures to welcome diversity, inclusion, and equity? Let's learn together with guest panelists and community discussion around deconstructing systemic barriers in traditional spaces through the voices of athletes competing and advocating in non-traditional ways.

Meet US Olympic Water Polo gold medalist, Ashleigh Johnson, the first African American to win a gold medal in the sport; NHL Seattle Kraken’s Kyle Boyd, Director of Youth and Community Development, one of a handful of African American executives in the NHL; and Bookie Gates, founder of Athletes Beyond Borders, a youth social development program. These are the game changers who are shattering barriers of racism. Dr. Robin Martin, Deputy Director, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will moderate the panel followed by community discussions.

This event is the second in the Y's Unleashing Potential for All series, a community space to learn about racism and oppressive structures, discover new voices, and activate community to create the generational change of equity and justice we pledge to our children. Learn more about the series here or make a donation to support the Y Equity and Justice Community Fund expand community-centered knowledge and approaches to solutions as public goods.
