One of the most interesting non-profit jobs might belong to Shannon Isom, who took over as chief executive officer of the YWCA Dayton about a year and a half ago. We sat down with her recently for a long conversation about her job, the mission and the community she serves. To learn more, visit ywcadayton.org. — Ron Rollins
Q: Talk about the YWCA and its mission.
A: We’ve been in Dayton since 1870, and on the corner of Third and Wilkinson downtown since 1913. At that time, it was a $580,000 building project accomplished for the most part with the same partners we have today — the city of Dayton and Montgomery County.
