We took a few weeks off, but we’re back with another edition of @Sree’s Sunday #NYTReadalong. Our guest is Suzanne McCormick, the 15th person and first woman to serve as president and CEO of YMCA of the USA. Neil Parekh will be the guest host.
The Y is a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Collectively, the nation’s YMCAs engage 11 million members — 4 million of whom are under the age of 18 — annually. Suzanne just celebrated her one-year anniversary with the Y, after twenty years with United Way (the last two as its U.S. President). We’ll ask her to reflect on what she learned over the past year.

We’ll also ask Suzanne about “Welcoming Week” at the Y, an effort to welcome new immigrants to communities across the country and the Y’s Youth and Government work, one of the largest youth civic engagement and model government programs in the world.
Founded in London in 1844, the Y has grown into one of the largest organizations focused on strengthening communities in the U.S. and around the world, serving more than 64 million people in 120 countries. In July, Suzanne joined 1200 others for an international conference. We’ll ask her about the Y’s global reach.
We’ll certainly talk about Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on Thursday after more than 70 years on the throne.

Sunday also marks the twenty-first anniversary of 9/11. We will take time to reflect on that as well.
