Melanie Pliskin’s Star Rises at YWCA


GBBN Marketing Coordinator, Melanie Pliskin, has been selected to participate in the 2020 class of YWCA of Greater Cincinnati’s Rising Star Leadership Program. Since 2002, the Rising Star Leadership Program has recognized outstanding, young professional women and sought to empower them to become strong leaders, who advocate for a more equitable world.

During monthly, full-day sessions that are facilitated by local and national experts, the program presents direct, specific training on how to confront and eliminate discrimination and how to promote racial and gender equity. It also involves nonprofit board training, so that in addition to taking on leadership roles in their workplaces, participants can foster the work of important community organizations.

While continuing to improve her leadership skills through the Rising Star Leadership Program, Melanie says, “I’m most excited to meet strong women from different backgrounds, who can push me out of my comfort zone and help me grow by thinking from different perspectives.”

Congratulations, Melanie!
