United Way of Northern New Jersey Women's Leadership Council is thrilled to be hosting our first annual Regional Breakfast! The Council is part of a global network of 70,000 philanthropic businesswomen and community leaders. We are introducing this annual regional fundraiser to bring together dynamic and community-minded women from across northern New Jersey, while advancing our efforts to support scholarships for ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households headed by women. These scholarships help defray costs of child care and continuing education. The Council supports these community members who work hard but do not earn enough to afford basic needs so that they can achieve financial stability and provide a good life for their families.

Special Guest Speaker

Laura Schroff, author of "An Invisible Thread," is a passionate and compelling voice on the power of kindness and mentoring. Laura encourages audiences to look for their own invisible thread connections, opening their eyes and hearts to opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others. "An Invisible Thread" remained on the New York Times Best Seller List for 39 weeks and received a Christopher Award, a Dream Catcher Award, and a Local Hometown Hero Award. Laura spoke in 2014 alongside Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former First Lady Laura Bush, and bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell at Leadercast. Film rights for "An Invisible Thread" have been purchased by OddLot Entertainment.
