“The Gen Y Leadership Project presents an opportunity to engage in social and professional growth, leadership development, and community activism. The next twelve months are a pivotal time for developing my leadership style, engaging female-leaders representing a variety of cultural, social, and professional backgrounds, and re-dedicating myself to community awareness and activism. I am excited to be part of a wonderful organization that promotes social justice, female empowerment, and eradication of inequities,” said Chavan.

The Chase Gen Y Leadership Project is a one-of-a-kind program that was developed with a foundation in the YWCA’s mission. It provides emerging leaders with the opportunity to be mentored by Columbus’ established community leaders.
