Meet 2020 YPAL Award Winner, Iris!

Iris Wilbur Glick

YPAL Member since: 2018

Hometown: Tacoma, WA

Where do you work?: Greater Louisville Inc.

Civic and/or philanthropic efforts?
I believe that sharing knowledge and resources helps our community grow. I currently help to connect others by carrying out financial education events that bring our community together and empowers them with knowledge. Through my dedication of creating networks, I also help our local businesses connect to resources. During Covid-19, I took on the role of helping local business owners obtain government aid by connecting them to lending resources that could actually help them.

What has been the most impactful part about being involved with YPAL?
Networking and engagement. YPAL represents an important demographic of our regional economy and talent. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the partnership when we have been able to join forces on events and advocacy efforts. For me, nothing rivals the impact of connecting YPAL to government and elected leaders so they can hear our perspective on policy matters.

Why do you love Louisville?
Its beauty. Our city is beautiful. We have an inviting culture and terrific food scene. Great place to live, work, and play! People hold doors open and welcome you with a smile. Did I mention the food scene?

A huge thank you to our Sponsors for your continued investment and partnership in Louisville’s Young Professional community.
