October 27: Women's Leadership Breakfast
On October 27, from 7:00 to 9:00 am at the Boston Marriott Hotel in Copley Square, United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council will host the 21st annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast. For more than two decades, the Breakfast has been the premier event for women in philanthropy in the Greater Boston area, bringing together 1,000 business and community leaders to raise awareness and support for vital programs in our region. In 2015, the Breakfast raised almost $400,000 to halt summer learning loss, create valuable youth work experiences, and fund scholarships that help remarkable young people become the first in their family to attend college.
The Breakfast will feature an empowering keynote speaker, Liz Murray, whose journey from homeless to Harvard is an inspiring triumph over adversity and a stunning example of the importance of dreaming big. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet and network with powerful philanthropic women from a variety of communities, industries and top companies in our region.
