Join ALCTS and LLAMA for a Presidents’ Program featuring Dorri McWhorter, Chief Executive Officer of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago.
Businesses and their role in society are often defined by an organizations’ tax status as a “for profit” or “non-profit”. However, every business is a social enterprise, whether they know it or not, and has a role to advance society. With social entrepreneurship on the rise, the convergence of for profit and non-profit business models is imminent. How do we create social impact and a world where everyone has value?
Dorri became the CEO of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago in March 2013. She has embarked upon a journey to transform the 140 year old social service agency to a 21st century social enterprise. Dorri is moving the agency into the digital age by re-launching the TechGYRLS program, which focuses on developing STEM awareness for girls ages 9 through 14 and introducing 3D: Developing Digital Diversity, which provides web and mobile application development training to adult women. A proven leader in the corporate and social change sectors, Dorri prides herself on being a socially-conscious business leader throughout her career. Dorri is an active member of Chicago’s civic, business and philanthropic communities.
