Leading the Mission

Tracy Williams is a nationally recognized leader committed to equality, racial and social justice, and diversity and inclusion with deep experience in uplifting underserved and disadvantaged community groups. She has served in several senior leadership roles at UW-Madison. Prior to her leadership at UW-Madison, she became the Diversity and Inclusion Advisor of American Family Insurance Corporate Headquarters, charged with leading the development and execution of a company-wide diversity and inclusion strategy.

She is a member of TEMPO Milwaukee, and formerly was a TEMPO Madison member. She has served several years as Commissioner for Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission and most recently served on Youth and Families Commission and the Mayor of Sun Prairie’s Ad Hoc Diversity Committee, responsible for recommending nondiscrimination ordinances, in which the Housing Discrimination Ordinance was passed 8-0 by the City Council.

Her Education:

Williams’ education includes a bachelor’s degree in individual and family development with a minor in psychology from Northern Illinois University, a master’s degree in Business Management from Cardinal Stritch University, and additional study at Harvard University, New York University, and University of Washington.

Tracy is deeply committed to and unfailingly passionate about leading YWCA SEW as an organization that walks its talk, models the change it seeks to see in the world, and understands the need to look internally as much as externally to lead an organization with such a challenging mission to a progressive and equal future.
