Celebrate the Power of Women United!
United Way of Northern New Jersey Women's Leadership Council is hosting our second annual Regional Breakfast! The Council is part of a global network of 70,000 philanthropic businesswomen and community leaders. This annual regional fundraiser brings 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. 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
We're honored to spotlight Maria Blet, national chair of United Way Women’s Leadership Council, as our keynote speaker. Maria has been a loyal donor since pledging $1 a paycheck when she landed her first job. Maria credits her involvement with United Way as vital to her success in business. Maria is a truly inspiring speaker who is very excited to address the growth and power of women philanthropists, a subject for which she has a strong personal passion. Her dedication to United Way Women's Leadership Council and her genuine enthusiasm for the work being done by the Council here in northern New Jersey are exciting and infectious.
Honoring a Community Pillar
We are so proud to be presenting our inaugural Women In Philanthropy Award to Sue Wetzel, North America, Medical Device Transformation Leader, Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems. Sue has been a champion for ALICE women and families as a founder and driving force behind our Council.
ALICE Scholarship Recipients
Scholarship recipient Sebastian Galvez, who spoke so poignantly at last year's Breakfast, will share the incredible opportunities that have come his way since then thanks to the Council angels watching over him. Sebastian will also introduce some of this year's ALICE scholarship recipients.
Registration deadline for the Breakfast is April 4, 2017. Don't miss your opportunity to join us for this premier event! Click here to register.
