Elaine Carlson
Co-Chair, YWCA World Service Council

Have YWCA history going back to high school as a Y Teen

Graduate school possible with help of a YW scholarship

My first local YWCA, St Paul YWCA, very strong in global education, and connections

As a delegate to the 1970 YWCA Convention, I was privileged to vote for the One Imperative – to eliminate racism wherever it exists and by any means necessary

Have worked at local, national and World YWCA levels

The World Service Council gives me the opportunity to continue as a “global citizen” in my retirement
