How to Build & find your Tribe
Join YWCA Columbus and five community builders: Hilary Buchanan and Megan Leigh Barnard, Co-Founders of Creative Babes, Helen Rollins from Black Girls Do Bike, and Melissa Blackburn and Danielle Lim, Co-Creators of Haven Collective for a powerful conversation about creating inclusive communities and finding your tribe.
